FEE

What is the cost for booking a Program Package?

The cost information is available under each specific Program Package option below. To book a Program Package, an accepted applicant will be required to pay:

  • The first installment of $350 per person by July 1, 2018. This payment is required to process the registration and reserve a space for the Program Package.
  • The second installment for the remaining balance payment of a selected Program Package by July 15, 2018. This payment is required to complete the registration and receive admission to the Program Package. 

What does the Program Package cost cover?

The Program Package cost is collected by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation (the organizer), in order to cover the costs of administration, service arrangement, and management of the event, which include but are not limited to staff support, service arrangements such as lodging, transportation, meals, venues, supplies, logistics, programming, security requirements, and other event service related costs.

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 Program Package application or registration processes.

Is the Program Cost refundable?

In the event of cancellation, the first installment is non-refundable as the fee is collected to cover FAF’s admin cost in reviewing, processing of applications, issuing documents, and reserving services from vendors; A proportion of the second installment may be refunded if cancellation is made more than 2 weeks prior to the program. Please read the detailed 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.

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. Early 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. Regular application decisions will be sent on a rolling basis.

II. Registration

1. Pay the first installment

Follow the instructions from your application acceptance email on how to make the payment for the Program Package registration.

The first installment of $350 is due by July 1, 2018 or upon application acceptance in order to begin registration and secure a space for the Program Package.

The second installment to complete the Program Package payment will be due by July 15, 2018.

2. Wait for your registration confirmation

Once we receive your administration fee, you will be notified with an email confirming your Program Package registration and containing the invoice, your invitation letter (for visa applicants only), and further instructions within 3 business days.

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 refund your first installment for the Program Package registration 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.
