Host Company Site Visits

Does Your Host Company need a Site Visit?

Some companies may require a site visit in order for your application to be approved. This is a legal requirement in order to verify the details of the activities, as well as make sure it is a safe and secure work environment in which to place you.

Please note: Under US State Department regulations we are unable to accept applications for Traineeships in "Home based office locations" - unless they meet certain strict criteria. Please contact us if you think this applies to you.

How do we decide who needs a site visit?

As a Designated Department of State Sponsor, CIEE will need to conduct site visits of Host Organisations where the following applies

  • Has NOT hosted a CIEE Intern/ Trainee in the past 3 years AND
  • Has LESS than 25 full time employees at location of internship or traineeship
  • Has LESS than 3 million US dollars in annual revenue

Host Organisations that are academic institutions or federal, state, or local government offices are excluded from the site visit requirement.

How long does this take?

As a general rule, a site visit will add an additional 3-4 weeks to the application processing time. During the visit, the representative will view and take photographs of the company environment, including the prospective intern/trainee’s workspace.

How much does it Cost?

If your Company needs a Site Visit there will be an additional £200 payable on top of the normal programme fees.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR INTERNSHIP INCLUDES MORE THAN ONE SPECIFIED LOCATION AND A SITE VISIT IS REQUIRED FOR EACH, THERE WILL BE A SEPARATE FEE FOR EACH VISIT.
