Travel Insurance

Participants are reminded that it is advisable to obtain travel insurance. Such insurance should cover payment for your medical care in the case of hospitalization as well as the cost of repatriation to your home country if that should become necessary. However ITU is unable to bear the cost of insurance for participants, any medical expenses or any other expenses.
