Planning for Your Trip


HGI advises all travelers to read the US Department of State background notes on their website. Travelers can also check the latest health information with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention at to get the most recent health advisories, immunization recommendations/requirements, and advice on food and drinking water safety for regions and countries. We also suggest that all participants consult their physician before traveling abroad.

Paying For Your Trip

HGI encourages our team members to raise support. You and your donors can make tax deductible payments toward your trip total by mailing checks to Hope Grafted In or paying online and selecting Ministry Trip in the drop down menu as well as indicating your name in the Other Comments box.

Flight & Travel Info

HGI will book the leader’s flight approximately 4 months in advance through the organization Fly For Good. If you would like to ensure you are on the leader’s international flight, we recommend you purchase your ticket simultaneously (we will assist you with this). If you are not able or do not wish to purchase your ticket with this arrangement, you will be responsible for booking your flights on your own (you will need to verify with us what time you should arrive in country). Your trip cost DOES NOT include airfare so even if you book with us you will be responsible for all flight costs.

After you book your flights you will need to send the itinerary to us for our records.

If you have any questions or want more detailed information, visit our FAQ page or send us a message!
