To become a host family, we will have to arrange an inspection visit to ensure your home is suitable for our international clients. We’ll need to make sure your home meets certain requirements, and the visit is also a chance for us to speak with you about hosting and answer any questions you may have. You can meet some of our friendly inspectors here.
