Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is homestay hosting?

Homestay hosting involves welcoming international visitors into your home instead of staying in a hotel. As a host family, you'll provide a clean, private bedroom and bathroom for your guest, along with breakfast and dinners on most days. You may also have the opportunity to participate in cultural activities on the weekends and provide transportation to and from Utah Global Diplomacy's office in Murray, Utah on most days.

2. Why should I become a homestay host?

Hosting international visitors allows you to expand your horizons and learn about different cultures firsthand. By opening your home to global leaders, you become part of a larger effort to nurture international relations and promote understanding and cooperation. Plus, you'll have the chance to create lifelong memories and friendships that transcend borders.

3. What are the expectations for homestay hosts?

Homestay hosts are expected to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for their guests. This includes keeping their homes clean and functional for visitors and treating international guests with kindness and courtesy at all times. Hosting is an opportunity to represent our country and culture positively while fostering cross-cultural exchange.
