Costs

To participate in Homestay China Program, you need neither pay Homestay China nor for the family.

All you need to pay is:

  • Cost of your passport, if you currently do not have one
  • Cost of applying for a visa; if you do not have a consulate near your home and need to use a third party company to obtain it, you might have to calculate with additional cost
  • Plane ticket to China
  • A total deposit of 500 USD: the first 250 USD need to be paid before your arrival after you have confirmed that you would participate in our program. This first payment needs to be paid via the PayPal within 7 days after confirming to participate in the program. We will send you an invoice from our PayPal account. The second payment of 250 USD needs to be paid upon your arrival in China. You will get back the full deposit after you have fulfilled the contract.

All costs for culture and language courses will be covered by Homestay China. Cost for accommodation and board will be covered by the host families.
