What is a mission trip? It is a short term experience for a group of people which is willing to invest time and money to partner with local Churches/organisations to build them up and serve them with their skills, experiences and talents.
Food, transportation and accommodations Your team will need to organise your own food, transportation & accommodations. We do provide one meal a day on working days, mostly yummy local Khmer food.
Is there a doctor is someone gets sick? We do have several hospitals here. Make sure your health insurance will cover treatment in other countries.
What vaccinations are recommended? We recommend Hepatitis B, Tetanus and Rabies. The others are not so common here.
What is the minimum age? The minimum age is 18 years.
What does a regular week for a mission trip look like? We strongly recommend you to arrive on Friday or Saturday morning in order to have some time to recover from jetlag and then join our three weekend celebrations which will provide you with great insight into our church and vision. ICF staff work 8h/day, 6 days/week; Tuesday till Sunday. Monday is our day off. Usually teams adapt to our schedule. We have different projects and activities which fill the schedule. However, there is always the opportunity to have extra teamtime. For a more detailed answer, contact Eddie Roach
Who creates the schedule for the team? The leader of the team partners with our responsible person at ICF. We are open for ideas but also aim to make sure that the mission team is here to serve and help where it’s needed.
Which visa do I need and where do I get it? In Cambodia, there is the “tourist visa” and the “ordinary visa”. Both can either be obtained online or purchased upon arrival, at the visa counter or at the border crossing. No further documents are required. Tourist visas are valid for 3 months and allow you to stay 30 days. You can get your visa in advance in your home country, apply for an e-visa or when you arrive. It saves time if you already have it in advance. If you buy one on arrival, it will cost around USD 40, bring two portrait pictures of yourself. There are usually no special requirements for a visa but better check it out online since it may differ and is subject to change.
What is the dress code for ICF Cambodia? We are modestly dressed. We expect to have shoulders, bellies and knees covered as a sign of respect for local culture. Ladies and men’s shoulders must be covered with at least 3cm wide sleeves and the shorts/skirt must go down to the knees. Ladies cannot show any part of their cleavage. Leggings must be covered with a long shirt or a skirt and transparent clothing.
