Please kindly note that there is an additional incoming fee of 50 Swiss Francs (50 Euros) for all volunteers applying through Partner organisations or Contacts of the SCI network. For volunteers coming from countries with SCI Branches and Groups there is no additional incoming fee.
This fee will cover local hosting costs; insurance costs of the volunteer; a small travel fund to enable disadvantaged volunteers to join projects; administration costs of SCI International.
If you apply through an SCI Branch/Group the fee will be included in the fee you pay to your sending Branch/Group. If you apply through a Partner organisation or Contact you will pay the fee on arrival at the project to the camp coordinator or you pay it directly to the bank account of SCI Switzerland. When accepted on the project SCI Switzerland will give you more details.

If this incoming fee exceeds your financial ability, please make a comment in your application.
