Flights and arrival

BUNAC’s preferred travel agent is STA Travel and they will be able to help you book your flights to and from the USA.

Give them a call on the BUNAC dedicated phone number 0871 468 0666 or get in touch at

You’ll be responsible for your travel arrangements to the Island. However, our knowledgeable team will be pleased to help you choose the most suitable travel plan. In addition we will put you in contact with our travel partner providing access to 1,000’s of discounted fares.

Most people will fly to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and there is a public shuttle bus which will take you to Long Beach for the ferry. We’ll provide more information as part of the application process.


In the majority of cases British and Irish passport holders will travel on the US Visa Waiver Programme, which allows unpaid voluntary project work for stays of no more than 90 days. You can check if you are eligible for the visa waiver here.

If you’d like to stay in America for a longer period you will need to apply for a tourist visa. Full information will be provided by BUNAC on acceptance to the programme.
