Is this internship paid?
If you are doing an internship within 3 months of time, we don't guarantee that you will receive an internship stipend, as the host company sees this as an opportunity for you to learn and develop and they will put in effort in mentoring you rather than receive constructive contributions from you. If you are staying for a period of more than 6 months we make sure you will receive an internship stipend from the 1st month(Roughly 300USD Per Month).

"I want to thank Asia Internship as they were committed to taking care of my needs and request, being available 24 hours and enabling me to settle in. They fixed me a sim-card and brought me to my accommodation as soon I arrived. My dietary requirements were taken into consideration which made it easier for me become familiar with the local cuisines. They introduce me to people who I have now become well acquainted with. Ultimately, they assisted making my stay a pleasant one."
