HOMESTAY DIRECT SERVICES requires all homestay families to have a current Police Check and working with children’s check for all adults over 18 years of age residing in your home. Police checks are required for homestays who wish to host international students over 18 years of age and under 18 years of age.
You can obtain a form either from websites below or from local police stations.
Please note that you are considered a volunteer and these applications are free of charge. Please send photocopies of your Police Check and/or Working with Children documents to our office for reference purposes.
It is important that you keep these checks up to date and always provide a copy of your current certificates to our office. These must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in applying to become a host please fill in the application form and upload a few images of your home. These must include an external pic of your home as well as student/s bedroom/s, bathroom, your kitchen/meals/living areas. We value your privacy however we have the right to use selected pics to form your host profile which in turn will be sent to the student and or their agency/school. We will contact you once we have received an application.
