We want your trip to be as awesome and seamless as possible, so we have important information to help kick-start the process. Please scroll down to learn more.
Step 1: Pick your travel dates — but don’t pay for anything just yet!
We LOVE that you want to visit your sponsored child! Once you have pretty firm dates in mind, simply call our headquarters in Kansas City - AT LEAST EIGHT WEEKS IN ADVANCE - at 800-888-3089. (If you live outside the U.S. or Mexico, you may call us collect, if you need to, at 816-942-2000, or email us at email@example.com.) We'll send you all the information you need, discuss trip options and cost, and inform staff in the country where your child lives, so they, too, can begin planning for your arrival.
Let us know as soon as you can when you’ll be making your trip!
Please familiarize yourself with these forms before your visit.
Step 3: Read the FAQs
You’ll get great travel tips, insight into your child’s country and important info about policies to keep both you and your child safe. Check out our tips in the FAQs.
Step 4: You will hear from us soon!
We’ll send you some forms and information you will need for your visit.
Step 5: Begin the three-week countdown!
When the calendar marks three weeks to your visit, confirm your final details with the office in the country where your child lives. Look for more instructions in the informational packet we’ll have sent you.
Step 6: (the most important!) Have a great trip!
