Amazon Health ProjectTrip Policies and Cancellation Information

  • Amazon Health Project Trip Dates are final.
  • All deposits for trip fees are due at the time of application. Deposits are non-refundable. However, deposit may be applied to another Amazon Health Project Trip within 12 months.
  • Trip fees are due in full 45 days prior to the trip start date. Due to the impact of volunteer cancellations on the entire Amazon Health Project Trip, trip fees are non-refundable.
  • Trip cancellations by Amazon Health Project are very uncommon.* Amazon Health Project will notify volunteers of cancellation no later than two weeks prior to expedition start date. If Amazon Health Project must cancel an expedition, it will fully refund trip fees, or apply fees to another Amazon Health Project Trip within the next year, at the volunteer’s discretion.
  • All volunteers who are accepted to accompany a Amazon Health Project Trip must register with the U.S. Embassy or other relevant embassy in Lima, Peru.

*It is strongly recommended that volunteers purchase trip cancellation insurance at the time they purchase their airline tickets.
