According to our info, some of you continue your studies/placements abroad, some of you returned home.
To remind that persons who have returned from foreign countries shall fall subject to 14 days isolation.
In any case please stay in contact with your departmental coordinator as well as with IRO (Kristina, firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you remain abroad, we repeatedly suggest to contact LT Embassy – to leave your contact data, even if you are not planning to return. Embassies should know about their countries citizens abroad.
Concerning the financial issues in case of shortening/cancelling your studies/placements – yesterday the LT National Agency announced that all mobilities, which were cancelled or transferred, will be recognized as force majeure. In that case additional costs can be reimbursed after participants present the appropriate documents and prove that those costs cannot be reimbursed from the other financial sources. In all cases the compensation amount cannot exceed the grant amount.
Once again – if you have any questions, please contact us immediately.
Stay calm and take this situation as a challenge. Take care of yourself and others.
