Security and visa matters
weltwärts exchange projects can only be carried out in countries where the participants’ safety is guaranteed. Consequently, some countries are excluded from the projects for security reasons. The travel warnings issued by Germany’s Federal Foreign Office (“Auswärtiges Amt”) also apply. All participants in development-related youth-group exchanges need a valid visa in order to enter the countries taking part in the project.
