Who can travel?

Aurohost is an international homestay network for people of the wider Auroville family. It is a safe and easy way for potential Travelers to get in touch with potential Hosts, thus connecting Auroville-related people around the world. Please read the Travelers Guidelines and Hosting Guidelines. (Note: Aurohost is not meant for travelers who want to stay in the Auroville community. For that purpose please click here.)

The first step is to register as Host or Traveler by providing a bona fide Reference Person, i.e. someone living in Auroville itself, in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram or closely connected with an Auroville International Centre. It has to be someone who personally knows you and can recommend and approve your registration. We will check the reference and you will be notified by email when your acceptance as Traveler or Host is complete. Once this is done, all further email communications will be just between Travelers and Hosts.
