Here are some important things to know about serving on a mission team.
You must have a valid passport to enter Haiti. Your visa will be issued on the plane.
Bring modest clothes. You should dress modestly while in Haiti in keeping with the Haitian culture. Clothes that are acceptable back home may not be appropriate for the mission campus or work site.
Treat others with dignity and respect. Inappropriate behavior is not acceptable on the mission team.
Watch your language. Crude language is not appropriate on the mission team.
Buy your plane tickets to arrive and leave Haiti on the team dates. Mission teams normally travel from Saturday to Saturday. If you plan to return home early, that will be fine. We will see that you make your return flight.
Follow your team leader. Stick with the work team you have been assigned. Follow the schedule of your ministry team. Any changes should be approved by your team leader.
Immunizations and Vaccinations.
Presently, Haiti requires a negative Covid-19 test result within 72 hours of departure if you are not vaccinated.
Haitian Immigration will accept proof of your 1st and 2nd Covid-19 vaccination in lieu of a negative Covid test result.
No Covid test nor vaccination are necessary to re-enter the US.
MTH recommends that all immunizations like Tetanus be up to date.
If you never received immunizations, please note that you will be at risk of contracting an illness should there be an outbreak of a disease while in Haiti (i.e. chicken pox, measles, etc.).
