COVID-19 response

June 2023

We’re very happy to announce that we’ve reopened our global bases for bookings, and are welcoming new participants across the world to continue making an impact where it matters most.

We’ve implemented new health and safety procedures and protocols to ensure a safe experience for all GVI staff, participants and local communities. Our newly appointed health and hygiene team is there to make sure that our health and safety standards exceed international recommendations.

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 epidemic closely, and follow updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the UK, US and Australian governments, and local government health advice from our operational locations. 

Please don’t ever hesitate to contact your in-country GVI program manager or contact us on our 24-hour emergency line for support.
