How to

Obtain Bahá’í credentials for travel
Friends who are going on pilgrimage or who wish to participate in Bahá’í Feasts, etc, when visiting other countries, may obtain international Bahá’í credentials from the National Office. These are issued as valid for one year. Please let the National Office know the country you are visiting as special advice is available for some countries and supply a passport photo (hard copy or digital). 

Update your contact information
If you are moving from one locality to another, please inform your Local Assembly, so that a transfer notice can be sent to your new community and to ensure you stay on mailing lists for local and national newsletters, voting lists, etc. Your Local Assembly will also pass your new address onto the National Office. If there is no Local Assembly in your locality, please inform the National Office directly.

Opportunities to Serve at the Bahá’í World Centre
As the vital work of the Cause unfolds in every part of the world, the effective functioning of the Bahá’í World Centre takes on added significance. The World Centre of the Faith––described by Shoghi Effendi as the “pivot of the agencies of the New World Order”––is supported by a flow of believers from a diversity of countries and occupations who arise selflessly to offer a period of service, of varying length, in the Holy Land. The staffing needs at the World Centre are continually changing in light of the evolving demands and available resources. At any given time, there are roles to be filled which require particular competencies or specialized training, and others that simply require a readiness to learn about one’s specific assignment. Due to the nature of service at the World Centre, the essential requirements include an ability to offer 12 months or more and a basic proficiency in English. Anyone interested in learning more about the possibility of offering a period of service at the World Centre is encouraged to contact the Office of Personnel at Offers of service can also be submitted directly at
