Approval for travel teams that are large (more than 8) are granted on a case-by-case basis. Travel teams that are too large can stress the host community, make project coordination more difficult and take financial resources away from the project. If you wish to request approval for a large travel team, please submit a compelling explanation to your Program Engineer why additional travel team members will benefit the community with which you are working.
As an alternative, if you do have a larger group, you are can stagger two smaller teams traveling. Each travel team must include a REIC and/or Traveling Mentor and two Health and Safety Officers.
