Important Annoucement

AFS Global Suspension of Hosting Program

The safety and well-being of our exchange students is always our highest priority.

AFS International and AFS Hong Kong have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 across our global network together with health experts and government officials. As the virus has now reached pandemic proportions, and as governments impose different restriction measures (including temporarily suspending schools, canceling large-scale events and limiting travel), we made the difficult and necessary decision to end current year programs early and to return our participants to their home countries and families.

Please know that this is not a decision we reached lightly and it pains us that this unprecedented action is now necessary. However, we are confident we are doing what is best for our participants.

We will return participants home as it is safe and possible to do. We are working with AFS offices around the world to schedule participant departures over the next few weeks, and we will inform the participant’s parents separately on the final arrangement.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or request for support.
