Any Scouting trip outside of the UK, including reccies and Network events, need to have followed the Visits Abroad process and be signed off by the ACCI and relevant Commissioner.
If you are travelling within the UK, but not on the mainland to places such as Guernsey or the Isle of Man, you do not need to fill in a Visits Abroad Form. However you DO need to submit a NAN form and evidence of additional insurance to the ACC International and your DC. Travel Insurance can be arranged through Unity Insurance www.scoutinsurance.co.uk
It is also recommended that you look at Globetrekker - this may give you some helpful hints and tips about your destination.
As well as visits overseas, there are many opportunities to join international camps in the UK each year.
Check out the International Opportunities page at HQ to see the latest updates and book a place....you never know who you might meet!
