Make sure that you have a valid passport to travel internationally. Some countries require your passport to be valid for at least six months after you get home. We need your passport information to get everything ready for your adventure and it’s important that the information on your booking matches your passport exactly.

For peace of mind, we recommend carrying a copy of the photo page of your passport and leaving a copy at home with family or friends.

Visa applications

Your nationality and the countries you are travelling through on route to the Arctic will influence whether you need to apply for a visa or not. Unless you are travelling through Russia, full visas are generally not required (although Canada does require an eTA).

We highly recommend you contact us or visit CIBT Visas to check what you need for your trip.

Swoop is happy to provide any documentation you may require for your visa. We ask for £25 GBP per visa to cover the administration costs involved, please ask your Customer Experience Coordinator for more details.
