Hosts get paid regularly while hosting a student. Each visiting student pays a homestay fee to their homestay management team to cover management and supervision of their stay, 24/7 emergency support services, translation services, and airport transportation services.
A majority of the homestay fee is passed along to hosts to cover day-to-day food and accommodation expenses. Homestay fees vary from region to region and range depending on accommodation, meal plan and location.
Your homestay manager will arrange payment to be made every 2 weeks directly into your bank account. This prevents any dispute regarding delayed or late payment by the student while protecting the student against any arrangement that might compromise his or her health and safety while in a trusted homestay environment.
Host compensation varies based on location, meals, and sometimes other amenities or considerations. Generally payments are designed to cover all costs associated with normal hosting. For further details contact your local FHN Manager.
