The standard documents are the basic documents that the students are asking for and the special documents are less important, as only some Local Committees ask for them. So it's mandatory to upload the standard documents, but not the special ones. (Students do it when asked for by the LEO/NEO.)
The upon arrival documents are hard copies documents that the students are requested to take with them in the host country.”
Immunization requirements
Our minimal immunization requirements are for: Hepatitis B, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

Insurance

As NMO, we require:
Health insurance, 
which must be arranged by the student, at his/her home country. It must be sent with the AF or handed to the LEO when arriving. Your clerkship will be cancelled if this requirement is not fulfilled.
Medical Malpractice Insurance, which must be arranged by the student, at his/her home country. It is only required by some LCs, so the students should only do it upon request. If requested, it must be sent with the AF (at "Liability Insurance" field of Card of Documents) and your clerkship can be cancelled if this requirement is not fulfilled.

IFMSA has established collaboration with the insurance company DR-WALTER. If you need any types of insurances, please check the packages through following the link: https://www.protrip-world.com/information/IFMSA

As NMO, we do not ask for Travel Insurance.
