What are the passport requirements?
A valid passport is required for travel but is not required at the time of registration. All passports MUST be valid for 6 months after the trip dates (in this case, March 11, 2020).

Do I need any immunizations?
OneChild does not require any immunizations; however, it is always wise to have your tetanus shot up-to-date. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov), “You should become familiar with what steps to take and who to contact in case of a medical emergency while you are traveling.” We recommend that, 6 to 8 weeks before your departure, you consult with your physician, local health department or the CDC website http://www.cdc.gov/travel/ for information required and recommended immunizations for the country where you will be traveling. Some vaccinations require a series of doses spaced weeks apart.

Why do I need a background check?
To ensure the safety of our children and determine eligibility to travel with OneChild, all travelers must complete a criminal background check. To process background checks, OneChild uses a third party company. After completing trip registration, you will need to submit your background check request at https://onechild.quickleasepro.com/. You will be asked to pay $45 by credit card to submit your request. This $45 expense is nonrefundable. The results of your background check are confidential and all personal information is kept in a secure location.
