11. Passport and Visa Requirements
(a) It is the responsibility of all guests, according to the type of passport you have, to check with the consulate where the application for a tourist visa is required.

It is your responsibility to monitor all visa, health, and testing requirements for international and national travel. TMS is not responsible if you or another passenger is traveling without proper health documentation or the correct passport or visa. In this case, you should pay the costs of assistance to solve these problems. In addition, you must complete the full payment of your training, without receiving any refund or compensation from TMS.
