WWOOFing? What to expect?
WWOOF China is an exchange program where all meals, accommodation, and genuine learning & experience are given to the volunteer (the WWOOFer) in return for him or her helping the Host with the activities they perform between 3-5 hours a day.
While WWOOFing in China you are a tourist and not a worker.
Visas are entirely your responsibility. Neither the WWOOFChina organization nor WWOOF China Hosts, can sponsor or support you in any way on visas matters. If you are in any doubt about your eligibility for a visa to China, go here Chinese Tourist Visa Information and navigate to the page concerning visas. If, after you have applied and paid for WWOOF China membership, you find you are unable to obtain a visa, a refund will not be given.
Use every method the Host has provided to make contact: Telephone, email, etc. Don’t rely on email alone unless that is all the host has provided. The telephone is often the best method to make contact and arrangements with WWOOF China Hosts.
Allow 3-6 weeks to contact hosts before you travel.
WWOOFers can stay as long or as short a time as they can make arrangements with Hosts to do so. There is typically NO money exchanged between WWOOFer and Host.
WWOOFers must obtain their own Visa’s and any other required documents. WWOOF China does not advise on obtaining Visa’s or Passports.
WWOOF China recommends travel insurance.
WWOOFing is cultural exchange in which WWOOFers live and work as guests with Hosts, learning hands-on through actual experience, new practices, new cultures and new friends.
