Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be accommodation provided?
Accommodation fees are included in the fees that are paid to the team coordinator and she will settle the bill with the place you stay. Do not expect to have a single room.
Will there be food provided?
We do not provide meals, self-catering is around 6-8€ a day, which is extra to the weekly fee paid.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
If arriving in Belgrade by plane we advise you to book your arrival time before noon so that you can use public transport to get to Šid. If arrival in Belgrade is after 13:30 it is difficult to catch the last bus to Šid. For departure we recommend to book your ticket after 16:00, again so it will be possible to use public transport. If your flight arrives too late for public transport or leaves too early, we can arrange airport pick up and drop off. This will cost additional 20€ each way.
What should my health condition be like?
If you have allergies or some medical history (depression, food disorder etc.) please make sure to point that out to the sending field BEFORE arranging your trip. The conditions at the camp are poor and diseases can spread easily. Make sure you have the basic hygiene and medical supplies with you that you need.
Do I need a visa?
Anyone with a European passport, not needing a visa for EU countries, or in possession of a Schengen visa can enter Serbia. Otherwise we are not able to provide an invitation letter for visas. Please check with your home office for more information.
