Are there any specific security requirements?

Depending on the type of work to be performed, participation in the Internship Programme will normally be subject to receipt of an appropriate security clearance from your national authorities. The required time to receive the Security Clearance depends on the national rules of NATO Member States and may take from eight weeks to 18 months. The clearance process starts once you have been selected. Your national delegation will contact you with regard to your national procedures. Thus, you are strongly recommended to return all documents required as soon as possible and not to make any travel arrangements before having received your clearance.
