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.
As a Designated Department of State Sponsor, CIEE will need to conduct site visits of Host Organisations where the following applies
Host Organisations that are academic institutions or federal, state, or local government offices are excluded from the site visit requirement.
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.
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.
