NOTE 1:. YOU MUST HAVE A PASSPORT VALID FOR AT LEAST SIX MONTHS BEYOND YOUR RETURN DATE to travel to MEXICO. U.S. Passport applications, renewal forms and information can be found on line at PASSPORT HOME
NOTE 2: Every diver on this trip is required to have Diver Accident Insurance coverage. Our destination is to a very remote section of Fiji. The hyperbaric chamber is located in Suva which is a 4 hour drive from our resort. Should you require urgent care, it is likely you will be air-evacuated by helicopter from the resort to Suva hospital or, if necessary, to Australia or even back to the US should your medical condition require a higher level of service than Fiji can provide. The only town in the area is 10 minutes from the resort with limited medical resources at best. If you do not wish to join Divers Alert Network and purchase their Diver Accident Insurance, proof of another plan you have that covers you for an an out-of- the- country accident including medical flight evacuation costs is acceptable. Diver's Alert Network Divers Accident Insurance can be purchased on line by clicking this logo link:
NOTE 3: For peace of mind, SWS strongly recommends you purchase additional trip cancellation/interruption coverage to help defray costs arising from unforeseen events. No one plans an emergency. But you can prepare for one. Carefully read any insurance policy before purchase to make sure it covers your specific needs. *Scuba World is NOT a seller of insurance. We are giving you information about insurance coverage as a service only.
NOTE 4: Divers Alert Network in addition to selling Diver Accident Insurance coverage also sells trip cancellation and interruption insurance coverage which is an expanded version of the basic DAN diver accident coverage. SWS highly recommends purchase of this trip specific additional coverage. In the event you have to cancel, the additional trip insurance coverage could help you receive reimbursement for non-refundable deposits and costs should you have to cancel or interrupt your trip to come home for reasons not covered under the Diver Accident Insurance Coverage.
If DAN trip insurance does not suit your specific situation for which you need coverage check out the information on the "Cancel of Any Reason" policy through Travel Safe
