    by bank transfer, NOTE! no cash reimbursement  only by bank transfer.
    Upon arrival in Ukraine participants shall be able to photocopy their travel tickets but we want

    and the hosts will reimburse 70% of the total travel cost.

    -          Observe that the reimbursement will only be made 2 months after the activities of

    -          Participants are expected in Sollefteå Sweden 14th march 2007
    and depart the following 19st march 2007. This means that participants are hosted for 5 nights and that contact persons are to

    on full board basis (breakfast, lunch and dinner) at the youth hostal.

     

    Delegates will be accommodated singel room 1 person in a room and thus

    Each participant will have singel bedroom with toallete.

    (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) delegates are expected to purchase

    money available.

     

     

    Dietary / Health Conditions

    health conditions or allergies, kindly indicate this in the registration form.

     

     

    Extra Nights

    Whilst air companies operates daily flights to a number of destinations,
    some other destinations only receive flights from Sweden once or twice
    a week. This might encourage participants to stay for extra days.

     
    o   Also participants may be interested in discovering the Sweden and
    stay over for a post-event break. We are therefore
    encouraging participants to stay for extra days in Sweden
    and
    have made arrangements by themselves. The extra nights are going
    to be paid by the participants and so be reducted from
    the Reimbursement because we as organizers are going to pay for
    all the nights of the participants from 14th to 19 march. As we said in
    our first correspondence the extra nights are going to be paid
    by participants.

    Transfers from the airport to youth hostel shall be organized by the hosts
    and this is why indication of arrival time / flight number is required on
    the delegates registration form.

     

     

    Insurance

    Participants are required to be in possession of a travel insurance policy,
    since this will not be covered by the hosts. Whilst organizing the event
    with utmost diligence, the hosts are nonetheless relieved of any
    obligation
    or responsibility arising from death, personal injury, illness, theft or any
    other misfortunate circumstance. Participants are to indicate
    insurance cover in the delegates registration form, and encouraged to effect such
    insurance policy as precaution is better than cure!
