Age (Seniors)

This page attempts to break down medical restrictions—that is, if you have a certain restriction, what countries will accept that restriction? This is in no way complete and should be considered an on-going project. Also, please keep in mind that sometimes, even though a medical condition is generally accepted in a country—that there can be personal complications that could affect one person and not another.

This information was compiled from a survey and additions and should be considered incomplete/fluid.

Countries Able to Accommodate

Countries Unable to Accommodate

  • China (could not accommodate age 81)
  • Namibia Ministry of Education will not accept anyone who turns 65 during service.

So here's a question: Why does Peace Corps work with organizations that discriminate on the basis of age?
