Upon intern’s appointment, ADB provides a limited amount to cover part of the airfare travel cost should air travel be necessary between the internship location and the authorized point of origin (i.e. school location).

The application site features an update of each application whether it is for evaluation, regret or hired. ADB HR informs successful applicants directly through email.

As a general rule, interns are not allowed to travel during the internship assignment.

In case of Manila based internships, you must ensure your passport is valid at least for 6 months prior to arrival and upon departure from Manila. If your nationality requires you entry-visa, ADB will request it from the Philippine Embassy of your location, and you will apply for visa accordingly.

The regular work schedule is 8:00 am to 5:00 pm with one-hour lunch break. Any other preferred schedule should be discussed with supervisors.

Past interns are ineligible to apply for another internship with ADB.

Completing an internship does not automatically qualify for an employment with ADB; however, ADB welcomes former interns to apply for jobs after they graduate from schools.
