Registering with your Embassy or High Commission

It is recommended that volunteers register with their Embassy / High Commission when overseas. This is in case of emergency and your Embassy / High Commission will know that you are in the country and can contact you by email.

To register click on the orange underlined link of the country of your nationality in the list below.

Some of the online registration pages ask you to submit a street address and not a PO Box address. Unfortunately some of our partner NGOs only have PO Box addresses. Advice from the Embassies / High Commissions is to enter UNKNOWN in the street address field and to give as much detail as possible especially the email address you will be using when overseas.
