More about fees
Flights begin from €450 one way and will be added on to your programme once we have confirmed your dates and destination.
Insurance can be purchased separately; please check approved insurers before purchasing.
€500 deposit due upon booking and balance due 6 weeks prior to departure.
US Embassy interview fee of $160 - this is not a USIT/CIEE fee and is paid directly to the US Embassy at the time of booking your appointment.
Site Visit Fee - if your Host Company has never taken on an intern through the programme before, if their annual revenue is less than $3 million or if they have less than 25 full time employees, CIEE will have to conduct a site visit. The SV fee is €250 and is a US Department of State requirement. We wouldn't find out if this is necessary until the application goes through vetting and the fee would only be added to your booking if and when we are officially notified by the sponsor that it has to take place.
