Interns are not remunerated. All expenses connected with the internship, such as travel costs, travel arrangements, living accommodation, visas, are the responsibility of the intern or the sponsoring institution. The United Nations will not accept any responsibility for costs arising from accidents and/or illness incurred during an internship and the intern, therefore, should have a health insurance coverage.

If selected, interns must commence the internship within a 1 year period of graduation. Please see the Official Website for specific eligibility requirements for each position.
