To know which countries and workcamp organizations belong to Zone 1 or 2, please refer to our latest Workcamp Organization List.
To start the application, you have to pay for the Application Fee of the highest amount among your workcamp choices to the bank account. If you are eventually placed to a choice with a lower Application Fee, we will contact you to refund the payment difference. For example, if the Application Fees for your 1st and 2nd choices are HK$1,850 and HK$2,850 respectively, you should deposit HK$2,850.
Amendment before acceptance
If you change your workcamp choices after application submission but before acceptance by the workcamp hosting organization, you are required to pay a Change Fee of HK$400. You must pay the fee before VolTra has received the acceptance notice from the hosting workcamp organizations. Otherwise, you have to pay the Change Fee for workcamp after acceptance.
Amendment after acceptance
If you change your workcamp choices after acceptance by the workcamp hosting organization, you are required to submit the amendment request and pay the Change Fee $800 at least 14 days before the workcamp commencement date. Otherwise, VolTra will not process your amendment.
Please email us at [email protected] for more details.
1. VolTra will only process your amendment upon receiving the new Application Form and the Change Fee.
2. If you cannot join a workcamp due to personal reasons and without making amendment, your application is considered as cancellation and all fees are non-refundable.
3. Any application which has already made amendment is not eligible for Give-up and refund of application fee.
VolTra has a very strict cancellation policy to discourage cancellation of workcamp.
All cancellation request must be submitted before the workcamp commencement date. Otherwise, it will be treated as absence. Please make sure that you are able to participate in theworkcamp before application. You may consider purchasing travel insurance to reimburse you in event of sickness, personal or family tragedy, flight unavailability, visa rejection, etc.
If you request cancellation for personal reasons, all fees are non-refundable. However, a cash coupon*, valued equivalent to your application fee after deduction of administration fee (Before Acceptance: HK$400; After Acceptance: HK$800) will be given to the applicants for joining VolTra’s projects in the future.
If your workcamp is cancelled by the reasons of hosting workcamp organizations (e.g. the workcamp is full or cancelled, the dates of the workcamp are changed, etc.), you could request for refund. Upon receipt of your give-up request, VolTra will refund the Application Fee after deduction of Give-up Fee, HK$300.
Please note that any application which has already made amendment is not eligible for Give-up and refund of application fee.
