Becoming a registered and approved host with HSA – Homestay access involves three steps:
Complete the WWC Application form and submit it. A welcome email will be sent to you. Click the activation link to verify your email address and ensure you have filled in all the sections of your host profile.
We will contact you to schedule an interview. A HSA – Homestay Access staff member will visit your home to meet you and inspect the student room/s and home environment. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions, discuss your expectations, learn about the placement process and get to know our staff.
Host Background Check
A background check is necessary to ensure the safety and security of international students. This is required for all people over the age of 18 living in the house.
You will need to go to a Service NSW to verify your identity and then the completed check will be emailed to you. This process can be short and in some cases, it can take up to four weeks to be completed. Once you have received your WWC or APP number, kindly send it to us for verification.
In some instances you may be required to complete your background check/s prior to scheduling your home visit.
