I, being the person applying for the Work Britain Visa Kickstart program, hereby confirm that I have read and understood the Work Britain Visa Kickstart program information.  I agree that my application and participation in the Work Britain Visa Kickstart program, as operated by IEP New Zealand Ltd (‘IEP’), shall be governed by the following Terms and Conditions.

Program Fee and Program Conditions

  4. IEP cannot accept liability for any loss or damage to any papers giving evidence or support in connection with visa applications.  It is recommended that applicants photocopy everything before sending it into the office.
  5. I must take with me evidence of access to at least the minimum funds required by the UK Border Agency.
  6. I must abide by the Terms and Conditions set by the individual companies and operators. These include airlines, insurance providers, ground transport operators and accommodation providers. If I am uncertain about these Terms and Conditions I must contact IEP prior to departure.

Cancellation Policy
I understand and agree to the following cancellation penalties and conditions:

  1. For cancellations made within seven days of my application being received by IEP, a $25 cancellation administration fee will apply. If an application is made via STA Travel then an additional $25 cancellation administration fee will apply.
  2. For cancellations made after seven days from the date of my application, 50% of the amount of the program fee will be refunded.

  5. All applications which result in the applicable visa being declined for any reasons relating to eligibility will be deemed as cancelled and will not be eligible for a refund. Applicants acknowledge that a decline of visa can be attributed but not limited to applicants being previously arrested by police, having criminal convictions (including drink driving), being charged for an offence but not necessarily convicted and having significant medical/mental history/condition. Applicants who are concerned about the likelihood of their visa being declined should consult with IEP prior to paying the program fee.
  6.

Details are available from IEP.
  7. IEP reserves the right to cancel my application if any of the eligibility and program conditions are not met in full.

All cancellations must be made in writing to IEP before any refund is approved.
