Registration fees:

The international projects are inexpensive stays but we will ask for a small participation fee for administrative costs. On site, you are fully supported (collective home or in family, food, entertainment, supervision, transportation to the workplace) by our local partner. Registration fees also include the youth card (if under 26 years), individual pre-departure training or in group in Belgium, an assistance with administrative formalities (visa, letter of invitation, ticket), an Emergency number 24/24 on the spot and in Belgium, the USA, and Germany, all necessary documents for preparing your trip. Because we operate solely based on volunteering, the IVS is probably one of the cheapest associations.

A Work Camp in France or Germany (2 weeks): 90 €

For one or two international work camp (1 month max): 170 €

For a volunteer in long-term (more than 2 months): 250 €

Multiple Projects: 250 € for 12 months (during one year, you can subscribe to an unlimited number of international projects in short or long terms in one or more countries).

       International Workshop in groups (min 10 persons): 150 € / volunteer. (+ 1 free  leader) and one year of free work camp for each group member

For volunteers under 26 years, each registration entitles you a youth card valid for one year. It also serves as a member card.

Attention! For international projects, transportation costs and insurance are the responsibility of the volunteer: each volunteer organizes and pays for the travel between home and place of the yard. In some countries, including Vietnam, we can book you a taxi waiting at the airport for a surcharge.

Also note that some host associations, almost all associations in developing countries, request additional participation fee generally ranging from 50 to 300 euro per month. Do not confuse the registration fee and participation fee. Registration fees are used for the operation of the IVR (although we are all volunteers, we have to pay electricity bills, internet, printer, insurance, rent, transportation costs, our computers, telephone, ...) and the participation fee is 100% for the host organisations (for the cost of the project, your accommodation, food, salaries, equipment, internet, ...). The participation fees are listed in the description of the project and the flyers provided by the host organization. The participation fees are to be given directly to the host association on the first day of your arrival.
Persons benefiting from Minimex (RMI) are exempt from registration fees (but not any participation fee and transportation costs)

Cancellation

The application for registration on site has commitment value and can not be regarded as a simple pre-booking.
 

In case of cancellation of the work camp by the host organization:

You are reimbursed for all fees paid to the IVR or you can choose another work camp. Attention, we do not refund shipping costs (please think of a cancellation of insurance).

 You must cancel your participation in the project:

Provided that we know at least two weeks before the start of the work camp, we will cancel your registration and you have 6 months to choose another work camp. If you do not warn us in time, you lose your registration fee.

Each last-minute cancellation can be a problem for the running smooth of the project, avoid signing up lightly!
