- The place where the applicant has spent 183 days or more in the course of the last 12 months, if the applicant does not have a registered company.
Note that if the applicant is currently living in a non-participating country, he/she will be considered as ineligible even if he/she fulfills the above rules in general.
Furthermore, host entrepreneurs who are currently residing in a different country from the country where their company is registered are not eligible to participate in the programme. Similarly, new entrepreneurs cannot have an exchange in the country where they are currently living, even if they have spent less than 6 months in that country.
