TRAVELLING & VISA
It is important that you apply for an entry visa to any of our venues from your country of residence. Please make the necessary arrangements with the Embassy or High Commission in your country well in advance of your travel plans upon acceptance to any of our courses.
Participants will receive a letter of invitation and accommodation arrangement details, which can be used to assist in visa processing. Please note that acceptance to attend an IDMT course does not automatically guarantee that any visa will be issued.
It is advised that all participating delegates purchase a travel health insurance and medical insurance coverage for pre-existing and unexpected sudden illness that requires significant financial input. Minor medical prescriptions can be purchased over the counter and covered by the participants’ own per diem allowance.
Participants should therefore arrange with the sponsoring agency to ensure that the necessary insurance coverage for the duration of their stay is budgeted for. It is the applicant’s responsibility to comply with the requirements set by the Embassies usually located in the capital city of your country or the embassy in your region responsible for your country.
IDMT is unable to influence or send direct correspondence to the Embassies or High Commissions on the applicant’s behalf unless instructed to do so by the embassy.
Please note that for short courses, you will be processed under the Visitor’s Visa category and NOT Study Visa, unless the course will be extended beyond six (6) months.
Request for seminar cancellation must be made in writing and received at IDMT three weeks prior to the seminar date.
A US$ 350.00 processing fee will be charge per delegate for each cancellation. Thereafter, we regret that we are unable to refund any fees due, although in such cases we would be happy to welcome a colleague who should substitute for you.
COURSE OUTCOMES AND EXPECTATIONS
Please note that IDMT will not award certificates to participants who attend less than 90% of the training or who arrive late for class. These guideline aim to facilitate the training process and are founded on the idea of mutual respect. since training sessions are sequential and the course load is heavy, it is impossible to repeat the topics already covered every time someone arrives late. The tuition fees will not be reimbursed in the event that the certificate is not awarded at the end of the training.
AIRPORT PICK-UP & DEPARTURE ARRANGEMENT
Our programmes are scheduled to commence on a Monday of the week. We urge all participants to arrive on the preceding Saturday or Sunday. Our welfare officer will be at the airport to receive participants, based on the itinerary usually communicated to us in advance.
Participants are not charged for this service. Similarly, IDMT will arrange free transport to the airport on time to facilitate participant’s departure at the end of their course.
ACCOMMODATION & MEALS
All our courses, both in UK and other international venues are priced on a non-residential basis i.e the charge per course does not include accommodation and meals. This enables participants to choose different types of accommodation to match their needs.
To assist participants in finding accommodation, we offer advice on a range of accommodation options. Upon acceptance we shall provide prospective applicants with a list of closely supervised accommodation service providers to choose from. Most hotels and guesthouses have both single and double occupancy rooms available.
