Team members staffed on these trips should not plan any international travel one month prior to the ReSurge trip due to difficult visa authorization processes. ReSurge will hold team members’ passports until the visa authorization letter is received and then apply for humanitarian visas.

Due to excess baggage issues, a maximum of five team members will be given permission to extend their stay and ReSurge will ask you to pay $100. No deviations from the team itinerary can be allowed for India.
