Legal Matters

Please check your Visa requirements at the Federal Foreign Office of Germany’s website.

If you require any assistance in obtaining a visa, such as a formal invitation letter, please contact the organisers at delegates-support@munich2013.eu as soon as possible.

Insurance
It is vital that all participants have their own personal travel insurance. Travel insurance will cover eventual loss of luggage, accidents, disease etc. Participants need to make sure to bring their insurance card with them if their respective insurance company requires such a proceeding.

Special Needs
If you have any needs concerning allergies, medical treatment or handicap facilities, please send an email as soon as possible with all the relevant information to delegates-support@munich2013.eu. We will do our best to make sure everyone will have a great experience in Munich!

Alcohol and behaviour policy
Alcohol (beer and wine respectively) will be available at some events – but the delegates should remember their national legal requirements. As young ambassadors of their country, the delegates are expected to understand that the organisers do not wish the delegates’ stay in the Germany and memories of Munich to be ruined by misbehaviour. The EYP frowns upon overindulgence. Delegates are reminded that any overindulgence in alcohol will result in the delegate’s exclusion from the session on the delegate‘s own expenses. The EYP operates a total zero tolerance policy with drugs.

Preparation
Delegates are expected to arrive well prepared for Committee Work, which includes carrying out extensive research on the respective topic, as well as following the current news and international political scene. The research and preparation for the session will be beneficial, both to the Delegates‘ personal experience and to the overall quality of the entire session. Remember the concept of EYP and benefit from this unique learning experience that you have in front of you. Committee Work and General Assembly are the basis and highlight of every Session, so please be aware of the seriousness and importance of being active and well prepared for both events. You will receive all necessary information regarding the selection of topics and preparation kit in due time.
