Travel Costs

The Council has authorised the WMA Treasurer to pay travel costs for elected WMA Council Members, Officers and Officials ONLY. The WMA regrets that it is unable to reimburse expenses of committee advisors, associate members representatives and other observers. However, the Council invites them to, and will welcome them at, the meetings. Council Members, Officers and Officials are kindly requested to make their own travel arrangements. Travel costs will be reimbursed by a bank transfer on the basis of the discounted economy class rate (return), excursion rate, from the airport nearest to their home and airport in Santiago.

NOTE: Early bookings of flight tickets will ensure the most inexpensive tickets. Please arrange your flights as soon as possible, and send the completed claim form (Council 212/Claim/Apr2019) to the WMA Secretariat by email at secretariat@wma.net.

Hotel Accommodation and Per Diem

Please book your room no later than 1 March 2019 and the cost of the room will be paid to the hotel directly by WMA.

The WMA Council Members, officers and officials will also receive a per diem for expenses by a bank transfer (to cover the cost of meals throughout the day, and transportation to and from the nearest airport on arrival and departure). THE PER DIEM AND THE HOTEL WILL BE PAID FOR THE DURATION OF ATTENDANCE AT THE COUNCIL SESSION AND FOR THE DAY OF ARRIVAL ONLY, except in cases where a Council Member, officer or official is requested to attend another special meeting either before or after these meetings.
