No group? No problem!
The 2019 "Summer Series UNITED" is an open group made up of English-speaking, young adult individuals and small groups from around the world.
Each pilgrim reserves his or her own flights to Rome. Your JMJ Youth Guide meets you at the airport upon arrival, and escorts the group to your accommodations.
The Summer Series UNITED group will experience the Summer Series "Core" week in Assisi and Rome together.

Visas to enter Italy
Pilgrims from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and the E.U. may enter Italy using their passports; a visa is not required.
Pilgrims from other countries may need a visa to enter Italy. The official source for information on visa requirements is your local Italian embassy or consulate. For unofficial information about visa requirements, click here.
JMJyouth cannot assist pilgrims with acquiring visas to enter Italy. Once final payment has been made, we will provide a letter confirming your participation in the Summer Series UNITED pilgrimage. This letter should be included in your visa application. However, participation in our pilgrimage does not guarantee that a visa will be granted. Visa decisions are typically made within three months of travel, after the refund deadline has passed. This means that JMJyouth, unfortunately, is not able to provide refunds to pilgrims whose visa applications are rejected.
