                      TAIEX technical assistance - Guide for Participants

1. What are my travel options?

Flight: the most economical fare will be purchased by the TAIEX Office through its travel agent, which will
select dates, fares and flight times.

Train or boat: the participant needs to buy the ticket. TAIEX will add the real cost of the ticket to the
participant's DSA. Any class of ticket can be purchased.

2. I need a visa to travel. What documentation can TAIEX provide?

The TAIEX invitation or confirmation letter should be used as proof of attendance at the event. TAIEX will not
contact Embassies directly on behalf of participants who may need visas, nor will TAIEX provide additional
attestations in support of visa applications. The invitation letter must be presented at registration for the
event.

3. Can I book my own flight and/or hotel room?

TAIEX is responsible for all travel arrangements through its contractors: booking flights, issuing tickets,
providing daily allowances and making hotel reservations as required, and expects to do so for all
participants.

It will not finance or reimburse any other arrangements made by the participant unless written authorisation
is obtained from the Head of the TAIEX Office in advance.

TAIEX will not normally provide any travel or accommodation arrangements for participants attending events
in their own country. Exceptionally accommodation will be provided for those participants required to travel
more than 200 Km in each direction in order to attend the event.

If TAIEX provides a hotel for participants, any participant who declines that hotel will receive only the balance
of DSA paid to other participants who have accepted the hotel.

4. How will I receive my flight ticket and accommodation details?

Flight tickets will either be delivered one week before the event by courier to the address given on the event
participation form, or made available prepaid at the airport. Please note that Post Office Boxes are not
acceptable addresses for this purpose.

Details of accommodation and other practical details are given in a confirmation letter which is sent by the
TAIEX travel agent shortly before the event.

5. How can I change the dates and routing of my flight ticket?

These are not changeable, except by the TAIEX Office. It is not our policy to make changes in routing or
dates at the request of a participant. Extra overnight stays before or after the event are not permitted. Please
note that tickets are not transferable.

6. I discover at the last minute that I cannot attend the event. What should I do?

Immediately contact the TAIEX office by e-mail to explain the situation. You will need to return any flight
tickets or DSA received. Details of the procedure will be provided if this situation arises. Please note that it is
not possible to substitute a colleague at the last minute.

7. How and when will I get my daily subsistence allowance (DSA)?

For events in Brussels or at TAIEX premises: DSA envelopes will be given out on the first day of the
seminar.

For events in any other location: payment will be by money transfer and unless notified otherwise is normally
available for collection at the time of the event; if not it can be retrieved afterwards. You will receive a private
code by fax which will allow you to retrieve the DSA from a financial institution in your own country. Your
complete and correct fax number must therefore be clearly indicated on the participation form.

When Officials from the Candidate Countries attend an event in their own country, no DSA will be paid.
8. What does the DSA include?

The DSA is calculated in Euros according to PHARE rates for each night spent attending an event.

The TAIEX Office usually takes care of all bookings for hotel accommodation, including breakfast and
lunches. These costs will automatically be deducted from the DSA and do not have to be paid by the
participant. If TAIEX provides a hotel for participants, any participant who declines that hotel will receive only
the balance of DSA paid to other participants who have accepted the hotel.

9. What additional expenses do I have to pay for?

The cost of private telephone calls, minibar, and other personal expenses of the participant have to be paid
by the participant on the spot using the DSA. Costs associated with obtaining a visa must be paid by the
participant or their administration.

10. What about local transport expenses, such as taxi fares?

The cost of local transport (e.g. from the airport/train station to the conference venue and back) has to be
paid by the participant from the DSA.

11. What attendance is expected of me during the event?

Participants are expected to stay throughout the entire event and may not leave for other purposes. An
attendance list must be signed each morning and afternoon by every participant. Any unauthorised absences
may lead to an adjustment of the DSA which would otherwise be paid.

12. What should I do with my travel ticket and boarding passes after the event?
                                                                         st
A copy of the travel ticket and the original boarding passes (for the 1 journey) will usually be collected by a
TAIEX representative during the event.

Participants must in any case send any remaining original travel ticket(s) and original boarding passes
directly to the TAIEX Office after the event. Note: This is a precondition for attendance and obligatory
for all participants.

If a ticket or any other cost is to be reimbursed, this must be agreed in advance and supporting documents
provided when seeking reimbursement.

13. How do I contact the TAIEX Office?

E-mail is the preferred method of communication.

All communication regarding an event must quote the four-digit event reference number. This is
located at the top of the participation form.
