How does our homestay placement work?

When you or your representative (i.e., your relative, school, or agent) submits an online homestay application, IHA will assign a local or national homestay coordinator. She or he will do the following:

    • Works with you and your preferences to find a homestay that suits you best.
    • Address any of your concerns, questions, and preferences that you may have.
    • Prepare a profile of you and your request and submit it to host families in the desired local area. 
    • Help you find the most convenient homestay accommodation close to school or workplace when possible.
    • Prepare offer(s) and email it to your inbox, preferably more than one homestay option for you to compare.
    • Assists you to book and guarantee the homestay that you will select until you arrive.
