Discover The Logistical Support You’ll Receive from UNEDI Logistical Support

UNEDI Logistical Support

UNEDI team will support you through your pre-departure training and preparation for your placement. We will arrange your flights, visas, accommodation and insurance. The process of being assessed, trained and preparing to leave on an international placement can take three to five months depending on your personal and professional commitments. The length of time it takes to secure your visa and work permit will also have an impact on your expected arrival date. You will be expected to undertake a criminal background check and a medical check for health insurance purposes. You will have a dedicated advisor to support you throughout the whole process

Medical Assessment and Clearance Process

You’ll need medical clearance from a medical adviser after successfully applying for placement.
UNEDI international medical advisers need detailed personal health information and you’ll have a full medical examination. This examination will usually be carried out by your family doctor, a travel health specialist or a doctor identified by UNEDI Global Service Office.

The Medical Advisers will review your medical information and decide whether your placement is medically suitable. This decision might contradict the recommendation of your family doctor or specialist who is usually responsible for your health, but it is based on our experience of medical provision in the countries where we work.
For more information please contact the Afro Delegates Foundation medical team on their confidential email at unedimedics@unedicampus.com
