Costs and budget planning for international programs can vary and must take into account the many legal, tax, and safety implications of moving and spending money across national borders.
In addition, international projects often involve costs associated with obtaining foreign permits and approvals and fulfilling regulatory requirements.
Refer to the Guidelines on Special Costs for International Programs for additional details regarding these and other costs.
The Budget Planning for International Programs tool can be helpful in evaluating a budget in light of these considerations.
When estimating costs for a particular host country, it can be helpful to consult with other University departments that previously implemented programs in the same location or another location with similar characteristics. Contact Global Support if you require assistance in coordinating a meeting.
