Refund policy

Our legal and visa documentation processes are outsourced by external consultants and retainers.  Thus, EduCARE India does not offer any refunds once your placement is confirmed as we are unable to absorb these external costs within the organisation.   In some exceptional circumstances for compassionate reasons, we may be able to offer a 50% refund, however this is at the sole discretion of the accounts department and will be processed in the next financial quarter after the refund request is made.  Please note that no refund request will be entertained in case of visa rejection by the Indian consulate. Under no circumstances will the program fee be refunded to the intern after the internship start date.

* Please note there is no legal insurance or visa documentation fee for Indian nationals or PIO/OCI card holders 
++ A separate visa application fee is required by each embassy.  Check your local Indian embassy website for payment details.
