How do I pay for my placement?

On Arrival:

Most people choose to pay on arrival as this avoids incurring high bank fees for international transfers. The fee is to be paid on the day of or day after your arrival at the VSN Office in Kathmandu and can be paid in Nepali rupees, American Dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros in cash. This will be arranged as part of your induction. Payment in installments is only available for volunteers staying longer than 3 months.

In advance:

If you would prefer to pay in advance we accept wire transfers directly into our account or through Western Union. Nepali bank accounts are not approved to receive Paypal payments at this time so please Contact Us by email and we can send you our bank details.
