Latest Updates

Covid-19 transfers and refunds

If a candidate is required to isolate due to either being a household contact with a person who has tested positive for Covid-19, or having themselves tested positive for Covid-19, they can transfer for free to an alternative tour (Zoom or in-person). If they choose not to transfer, they can apply for a 90% refund.
