How to Register for the Trip

 

Step 1: Fill out the following forms - sign them and EITHER scan and email them to adeli@email.arizona.edu OR mail them to CMES, 845 N. Park Ave., #470, Tucson, AZ 85721: PLEASE DO THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT WE KNOW YOU ARE INTERESTED.

Step 2: Pay online by MAR. 15:

Step 3:

  • Purchase short-term travel insurance that includes emergency medical care, emergency evacuation, and repatriation of remains.  Note: You will probably never NEED any of this, but it's required for liability reasons. Click here for a link to GeoBlue or click here for a link to Allianz, both of which are good. Another note: You won't need to buy additional coverage IF you have health insurance that covers emergencies overseas AND IF you book your airline flights with an airlines credit card that provides the aforementioned coverage. Either way, be sure to email or mail a copy to me at: adeli@email.arizona.edu OR CMES, 845 N. Park Ave., #470, Tucson, AZ 85721.

Step 4:

  • Book your own airline tickets. (It's usually easiest to make round-trip tickets to Zagreb, Croatia; London/Heathrow, England; Vienna, Austria; Istanbul, Turkey; or somewhere like that, and then purchase another ticket to Sarajevo, Bosnia. Make sure you arrive in Sarajevo by Saturday, early afternoon. If you have any questions at all, please contact Lisa Adeli at: adeli@email.arizona.edu or 520-621-7904. And for expert assistance, we would suggest Herod Travel: herodtravel@comcast.net or 520-760-4882. They are experts in this kind of thing. When you book your tickets, also email or send Lisa Adeli a copy of your itinerary. - That way you will be picked up at the airport:)
