However, reimbursement shall not be requested when the participant has been prevented from completing his/her mobility activities due to force majeure.

A first part of the payment, representing 70% of the financial support (individual and travel support), shall be made to the participant within 30 calendar days following the signature of the Grant and Mobility agreements by both parties. More specifically, the Grant agreement is expected to be signed by the participant upon arrival at the European and International Relations Department of NKUA during the first day of his/her visit. Then, the European and International Relations Department of NKUA will start the procedure of payment of the 70% of the financial support. The Grant agreement and the order of payment will be sent to the Accounting department in order to proceed to the bank transfer. The Accounting department usually needs 2 to 3 weeks to complete the process.

The remaining 30% of the financial support shall be payed after the departure of the staff member, the final estimation of the mobility period and the successful submission of the online EU survey. The order of payment will be sent to the Accounting department in order to proceed to the bank transfer. The Accounting department usually needs 2 to 3 weeks to complete the process.

The participant must provide proof of the actual dates of start and end of the mobility period based on the Certificate of Teaching. The boarding passes and tickets are the supporting documents of the participant’s mobility between the Sending Institution and NKUA and indicate the participant’s place of departure and arrival.
