What else do I need to know?
Cost: $1500-2000 depending on when we book the flight. The amount is
inclusive of lodging, food and ground transportation. Bring a little extra if
you want to do some shopping. The exchange rate hovers around 45
Philippine pesos to 1 US dollar. We have contacts in the Bishop's office
who will exchange dollars for pesos at a favorable rate.
Travel: You will need a valid US Passport to travel to Manila. Make sure
that it will be valid prior to departure and valid for your return. If you don't
have one and you're thinking about going, please get one NOW. A travel
VISA (not the credit card) is not required. Flights on Delta from Atlanta to
Manila typically require a plane change in Narita, Japan. The stay is very
Immunizations: Please check the CDC website for current travel bulletins.
Typically the CDC recommends preparing for malaria, yellow fever and
Dengue fever, as well as having current boosters for tetanus and hepatitis.
However, because we spend most of our time in urban areas my
experience has been that I have not needed the immunizations for malaria,
yellow fever and Dengue fever. Nevertheless, please seek the advice of
your personal physician concerning which immunizations you need.
Language: You do not need to learn a language. The majority of Filipinos
speak and understand English, which will speed up your ability to develop
friendships with our friends and partners there.
