Going Abroad

Are you planning a Scouting Visit Abroad  ?

If you are planning a Visit Abroad yourselves there have been some recent changes. There is a new 2-part process to ensure that each trip receives as much help & support they need in order to run their adventure! One of the big changes is now that any member of the Scout Association who undertakes a trip abroad must complete the new process. Even if it is just one adult.

There are many different opportunities within Scouting to take part in many different international activities. Why not check out Programmes Online or some of the other resources on the new 6-25 page. You can also get lots of help and advice on the national pages. You can also download international opportunities with lots of ideas.

Visit Scout Globe Trekker for ideas.

What is the process ?

1Download the Visits Abroad pack from Here
2At the very start of your planning complete Part A of the Visit Abroad form and sent it to your relevant Commissioner (DC/CC). This will allow them to identify training/support needs and also grant outline approval to continue
3Your relevant commissioner will then notify you and the ACCI of their approval to continue planning or their reasons for rejection
4Plan your trip using guidance from the Visits Abroad Pack & the International Pages online
5Make sure you have appropriate Nights Away permits in place along with relevant Activity Permits
6During your planning please ensure you share the following with the ACCI Itinerary, Programme, Insurance Policy, Risk Assessments, Critical Accident Plan, Participant List
7Plan your InTouch process and make sure you appoint an Emergency Home Contact
8Update Parts A and B of the Visits Abroad form finalise any of the above documents and submit to your ACCI who will then recommend approval from your relevant commissioner
9Once approved by your relevant commissioner you ACCI will submit your Visits Abroad Form to HQ 6 weeks before departure
10Enjoy your trip
11On your return dont forget to share your experiences with other sections groups & Commissioner

Further information on all of the above process can be found at the dedicated national pages.
