1. Travel

Flight: the most economically advantageous fare will be purchased by the NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team ensuring accordance with the training schedule and timing. Flight proposals will be sent to each participant for approval, and then the flight tickets will be issued and sent electronically via email in the form of e-ticket to each participant.

Train or boat: the NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team will provide to the participant a ticket in first or second class, or alternatively - a refund if it is not possible to issue the ticket.

Other means of transport: only if written agreement is obtained from the NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team in advance and before the event.

Once the itinerary is confirmed by the participant and tickets are purchased by the NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team, changes are not allowed unless for emergency reasons.

2. Visa

The NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team will provide supporting documents to the visa application, such as Invitation Letter and Hotel Booking Confirmation with further visa procedure instructions via email. Each participant from a country outside the European Union and Shengen Area must check before travelling whether they need a visa or not. If visa is required participants must immediately contact the embassy to start the visa procedure, as the process may take up to 50 days. Costs associated with obtaining visa should be covered by the participant and will later be reimbursed by NSF Euro Consultants upon receipt of the proof of payment and signature of a reimbursement request form.

3. Insurance

Participants are responsible for their own insurance arrangements. NSF Euro Consultants will not reimburse any personal medical expenses. For EU citizens we recommend the European Health Insurance Card, which is free of charge and, in case of medical emergency, will provide access to medical services at no or reduced cost depending on the country.

4. Local transport

Local transportation (airport transfers) is generally arranged and paid by NSF Euro Consultants. On some occasions, NSF Euro Consultants may ask a participant to book their own transfer and will reimburse the costs. However, no taxi costs will be reimbursed without prior approval. At least one week prior to the course each participant will receive clear instructions on the local transportation (airport transfers) via email.

5. Costs

The NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team is responsible for all travel arrangements: booking flights, issuing tickets, and providing local transport (airport transfers), hotel reservations and catering. Other arrangements made by participants will not be financed or reimbursed without prior approval by the NSF Euro Consultants BTSF team. Costs for private telephone calls, minibar, and other personal expenses will be borne by the participants themselves.

6. Accommodation

The NSF Euro Consultants BTSF Team will arrange a group reservation for all participants at a 4* hotel or equivalent for the dates of the training activity. Each participant will be accommodated in a single room or a double room for single use. Extra overnight stays before or after the event are not encouraged and need to be booked and paid separately by the participants.

7. Catering

All breakfasts, lunches and dinners are included in the package. Breakfast will be served every day in the hotel’s restaurant. Lunch time varies every day according to the programme for the day. In the evenings dinners will also be served in the hotel, apart from the Social Night Evening during which the group will experience a pleasant tour around the city and dine in a local restaurant.

8. Cancellation

The BTSF team of NSF Euro Consultants should be contacted immediately upon cancellation of participation. National contact point must be put in copy of the informative written communication. Non-attendance or cancellation is reported to the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA).

9. Attendance

During the training activities attendance sheets are circulated for signature by the trainees participating in the training activity; first name, last name and sending country are included in these sheets. For statistical purposes only, this information will be introduced by the Contractor in a database created and maintained by the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency. All the information received by the Contracting authority through this database will be treated confidentially.
