The minimum age for participation in our courses is 18 years.
Payment has to be made in full to the benefit of NMTI’s account prior to the beginning of the course, at the latest 7 days after receiving a note of acceptance by NMTI. The participant bears all ensuing bank fees and transfer costs.
After receiving the application and full payment NMTI and AALIM will issue a registration confirmation which constitutes a legally binding contract. If the payment of the course fees is not made within the prescribed period the participant’s registration will be cancelled and the spot made available for other students.
NMTI and AALIM reserve the right to make changes to the course timings or contents due to technical or personnel reasons or in case of force majeure.
Cancellation and Withdrawal Policy
It is possible for the participant to withdraw from the program up to 14 days before the course starts and receive his full payment back.
Up to 7 days prior to the course the participant who withdraws can only be reimbursed 50% of the course fees if a replacement for his/her spot in the course can be found.
If NMTI/AALIM are notified of the participant’s wish to withdraw within the last week prior to the course, no reimbursement will be made.
These deadlines are counted in calendar days and are effected in the Omani time zone (GMT+4).
If cancellation is due to a personal emergency or an emergency within the immediate family, which has to be documented in writing, NMTI/AALIM will consider reimbursing an amount up the full payment; or the registration can be put on hold and used for a later course.
In any case NMTI/AALIM will have to charge an administrative fee of 100 OMR for any of these changes.
Similarly, if a participant has to leave a course earlier due to a personal emergency or an emergency within the immediate family, which has to be documented in writing, the student may receive a partial refund for the portion of the course not yet completed.
Otherwise it is not possible to be reimbursed for missed course days if the participant chooses to leave the course before its official termination.
If a participant misses the courses more than two times without a valid excuse (e.g. illness) in writing NMTI/AALIM reserve the right to exclude this participant after an official warning without any reimbursement of the course fees whatsoever, neither fully nor partially.
NMTI/AALIM are not responsible for any costs ensuing from medical treatment (consultancy fees, hospitalization, medication, repatriation etc.) or for any fees that the participant needs to pay in order to change their flight due to an illness.
NMTI will support its students’ visa application for all nationalities not mentioned on country list 1 of the Royal Oman Police (http://www.rop.gov.om/english/countrylist1.asp) assuming the participant’s full cooperation in providing NMTI with the correct personal data and required documents. However NMTI cannot guarantee the success of every visa application as these applications are granted at the discretion of the administration of the Royal Oman Police, (ROP). In case of the refusal of the visa by ROP NMTI will reimburse the full course fees except an administrative fee of 50 OMR.
Nationalities mentioned on country list 1 (http://www.rop.gov.om/english/countrylist1.asp) will obtain a 30-day tourist visa upon arrival in Oman. (please check visa requirements and regulations under http://www.rop.gov.om/english/dg_passport_visas.asp)
AALIM will provide an enrollment letter to support request for a Moroccan visa for any student requiring one; many nationalities do not require a visa and may enter the country and remain for 90 days without one. Details are available at (http://www.moroccanconsulate.com/visa.cfm)
All visa costs will be borne by the participant.
The student is obliged to follow NMTI’s and AALIM’s site rules and dress code.
The student commits to follow his/her host home’s house rules and mores and to respect local morals.
As a representative of the NMTI or AALIM community students are also bound to behave in a correct and culturally sensitive manner in the towns of Ibri and Meknes and its surroundings as well as elsewhere in the country.
NMTI/AALIM are obliged to inform students comprehensively about cultural particularities and to educate them about rules, rituals and mores during orientation.
