What about Visas, insurance and vaccinations?


On arrival you will receive a 14-30 day tourist visa and then you will acquire a volunteer's resident permit.  Your passport will however need to be valid for at least six months after the date of entry in order to leave through South Africa. During your Easter holiday you may need to apply for an extended South African visa in order to depart Lesotho. You will be covered by Dolen Cymru’s insurance policy for all activities during your stay with the exceptions of risky activities such as rock climbing or skiing. 

There is no malaria in Lesotho and it is recommended that you visit your GP surgery for current advice on vaccinations.  You will also be asked to completed an online health questionnaire which is completely confidential, administered by a company called Interhealth.
