Frequently Asked Questions about entering details

I'm renewing my passport and don't have the details yet

This is no problem at all. Please complete all other portal sections and add your passport information when you have it.

What do I put in the insurance box?

You need to enter your travel insurance policy details.

Please see https://www.opwall.com/resource/insurance/ for more information. However, in short, all participants are required to have travel insurance that covers their expedition.

For school groups, frequently this is taken care of by the lead teacher so this section can be ignored by members of a school group.

I can't see any invoices

If you have an outstanding invoice you will be to pay for this through the pay invoices page.
