China Delegation Terms and Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Booking Deadline, Waitlist and Confirmation

A confirmation email will be sent to you within 1 – 2 business days of the IPA receiving your registration along with a Letter of Invitation for Visa purposes. Please notify the IPA by phone or email if you do not receive a confirmation email within this timeframe. Registrations are based on a first-in-first served basis. A waitlist will be taken once maximum numbers have been reached. In case of overbooking, a selection will be made according to the date of the receipt of the application. Therefore it is recommended that delegate’s do not make any flight bookings until confirmation is received from the IPA.

Conditions of Registration

Payment is required within 14 days of invoicing. Full payment is required no later than Friday 27 May 2016. The IPA reserves the right to withdraw or cancel a delegate’s registration should payment not be received by this time.

IPA reserves the right to alter a program or specific presenter without notice, however, the program is intended to run as advertised.

Delegates are required to attend all events as included in the agenda. Should the delegate be unable to attend due to illness or injury they must notify the IPA group host immediately.

The tour is subject to minimum numbers and IPA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule the event should minimum numbers not be met. For this reason it is strongly recommended that delegates take out travel insurance.

Passports are required for travel with a minimum validity of 6 months from date of return. Australian Passport holders require a Visa to travel into China. This is the responsibility of the passenger to organise their visa. The IPA will not be held liable for any costs should a delegate’s visa be declined and any refunding of fees will be at the sole discretion of the IPA.

Delegates must not violate Chinese laws and depart within the allowable stay as per their visa requirements.

Insurance

IPA requires delegates take out insurance to cover loss (including registration fees) incurred in case of cancellation, medical expenses, delays and damage to or loss of personal effects.

During the event, the safety of property and the individual is the consistent and sole responsibility of the delegate.

The IPA will not be responsible for any medical costs, delays or damage to property incurred by participates. The IPA will not accept liability for personal injuries or for loss or damage to property belonging to Delegation participants, either during or as a result of the event or during any tours.

Code of Conduct

Delegates participating in IPA organised events are required to uphold behavioural standards that reflect the good standing of IPA. Any practice resulting in complaints, who in the opinion of IPA interferes with the rights of others, may be prohibited from the event by the IPA.
