Accommodation will either be provided within the project itself or the host entity will arrange it for the participant, in which case the rent of the accommodation will be included in the project fee paid by the intern.
We have different kinds of accommodation which can be in the form of hostels, dorms to participant’s houses which are apartments specifically for AIESEC Exchange Participants or in host families. The type of accommodation can vary from project to project and even within a project we can have different types of accommodation and at times the exact nature of accommodation can only be confirmed a few weeks before the project starts as it is subject to availability.
Nevertheless, accommodation will definitely include: a single bed, access to clean water, access to a bathroom, and access to electricity.
Usually there is no choice, the participant is just told about it a few weeks before the project starts. However a tentative option is given to the intern beforehand through which they can decide if they are okay with it, otherwise they can have the option of going with another project with a more suitable accommodation if required.
Accommodation fee is usually included in the project fee itself that is told beforehand to the EP before applying and is paid only once upon arrival to the country.
In few projects, food is provided and covered in the project fee itself. However, mostly the participant is given liberty to choose their own food which is considered more convenient for the intern.
In case the food is not provided, then the participant is instructed on where he can find what kind of food in the incoming preparation seminar held there soon after the arrival. Some of our accommodations can also have in-built kitchens where you can cook your own meals!
AIESEC will help you by providing visa support. First and foremost, the Exchange Participant Manager will be suggesting the countries according to the visa status of those countries, meaning that they will recommend you only those countries which will have smoother visa regulations. Secondly, Invitation Letters, Accommodation proofs and other necessary documents(depending on the country) are to be provided from AIESEC to help in the process. AIESEC plays more of a consultative role as far as visa is concerned by providing guidance and the required documents.
The refund handling procedure will differ in case-by-case basis. Usually, if the work permit/VISA is rejected due to any factor that AIESEC in Hong Kong has no control of, no refund request shall be entertained. Otherwise, the applicant may be entitled to a partial or full refund, subject to the exact reason of the rejection.
Indeed, you can go on exchange without vaccinations. However, that would depend on the border restrictions of various countries and most immigration offices would require 2-3 vaccinations upon entry.
For the European Union, you must be able to provide a proof of recovery or negative COVID test result (both antigen tests or PCR tests are accepted) and they must not be older than 48hrs at the time of planend entry into a specific country.
For other countries, that would be dependent on the policy of countries. Please do check the vaccination requirement upon entry.
If you’ve been involved in a foreign car accident, seek any medical attention you may need immediately. Call the police or equivalent authority as soon as the accident happens and ask for a copy of the report. Subsequently, contact your nearest embassy/consulate for further assistance (normally located at the capital of each country). For any disputes amongst parties, do remember to make notes of what happened, take photographs of the scene if safe to do so, and collect the names and addresses of any witnesses as they could be important to support your claim.
In cases of natural hazard / political and social unrest, please do contact your Exchange Participant Manager and inform him/her about your most updated personal situation. Under these scenarios, operations are still in place and you may choose to either continue the journey or cancel the journey and return to Hong Kong. Our overseas AIESEC responsible will also be taking care of your wellbeing in the meantime.
In cases of diseases outbreak, please firstly contact your health insurance and ask for medical help. Under these scenarios, please then also contact your Exchange Participant Manager and your overseas AIESEC responsible to book an accommodation for 14 days for self quarantine until a negative result is out (PCR/Antigen Test).
