FEE

What is the fee?

A $215.00 non-refundable and non-transferable administration fee per person is required to complete registration and obtain invitation letter and admission to the 22nd Session of The Youth Assembly. Please note that the United Nations, US embassies, Permanent Missions or any of FAF’s program partners are not in any way involved in the Youth Assembly application or registration processes.

What does the administration fee cover?

The non-refundable fee is collected by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation (the organizer), in order to cover the costs of administration and management of the event, which include but are not limited to staff support, venues, supplies, logistics, security requirements, and other conference service related costs.

Why is the fee non-refundable?

FAF facilitates and conducts the reviewing, selection, and processing of applications. In addition, FAF processes and issues invitation letters or admission letters. In return for this service, participants may not request refund, credit or dispute the charges before, during, and after the FAF Program. Please read the refund policy in the Terms and Conditions.

VISA

International applicants who are based outside of the United States are responsible for obtaining their own visa to travel to the US. Please note that Friendship Ambassadors Foundation’s responsibility is limited only to supplying the invitation letter to the event. Friendship Ambassadors Foundation is not affiliated with US embassies abroad, and it has no ability to influence the embassies’ decisions on applicant visas.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

Before filling out the application form:


STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE

Application → Registration → Admission

I. Application

You will be instructed to read the Terms and Conditions before filling out your application form. To submit your application, you must complete all required information. Please note that you cannot save your answers at any point. Please review the application guidelines to help you prepare the requirements.

Applications will be reviewed and evaluated based on eligibility. Fill out the form carefully and to the best of your knowledge as it will determine your acceptance to the program. Submission of the form does not automatically guarantee acceptance.

As soon as your application form is submitted successfully, you shall receive an auto-response email including a copy of your submitted application form and additional important information. Application decisions (acceptance, rejection, pending) will be communicated via email on June 1, 2018, 9:00 PM EST. Please do not call or email regarding the status of your application prior to this date. 

II. Registration

1. Pay the administration fee

Follow the instructions from your acceptance email on how to pay the administration fee of $215.00 (USD) per person to complete your registration. This non-refundable and non-transferable administration fee is required to process a single registration and to issue invitation letter and admission to the 22nd Session of The Youth Assembly. If we did not receive the administration fee by the indicated date in your acceptance email, we will consider your application withdrawn. To receive the early-bird benefit, please pay the administration fee by June 10, 2018.

2. Wait for your registration confirmation

Once we receive your administration fee, you will be notified with an email confirming your registration. This process may take up to five or more days depending on your payment method.

For U.S. visa applicants:

If you need to apply for a U.S. visa to attend the program, you will receive a formal invitation letter after your administration fee is received. Please note that this letter does not serve as the formal admission letter, nor guarantee acceptance of your U.S. visa application.
Once your U.S. visa application is granted by an embassy, please proceed to the next step. If you are not able to obtain your visa by first attempt, we suggest that you reassess your application requirements to see if there are any insufficient documents and decide whether you wish to apply again. Unfortunately, we are unable to make any refunds in the case that visa is not granted, as we have invested our efforts in processing your application. Please review the terms and conditions here.
