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 may transfer to an alternate tour (transfer fees applicable).

Alternatively, candidates may apply for a 90% refund subject to proof isolation directive (from the Ministry of Health text services 2328 or 2648).
