Under which circumstances are boarding expenses admissible when the child attends a school in the county of the duty station?

Boarding expenses can be admissible on exceptional basis when a child attends an educational institution beyond commuting distance from the area where the staff member is serving and in the opinion of the Secretary-General, no school in the area will be suitable for the child. Information on such exceptions can be obtained from the local HR Office.
