Protecting your information
Protecting personal information we receive from you is of crucial importance to CIBT. While there is always some risk involved with transmitting information over the internet, we strive to protect against the misuse of any personal information that we receive from you via our website. CIBT data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This technology ensures the safe transmission of all data, including personal and credit card information. By taking such measures, CIBT customers can feel secure in the knowledge that their data is protected when using our website.
CIBT employs third-party entities to perform functions on our behalf such as data analysis and marketing assistance. The data that we provide them is anonymous and does not reveal specific personal information related to our customers. This data is used for specific functions that require broad-based user statistics which help to improve the overall CIBT customer experience. You can disable cookies on your computer. Should you do so, helpful information may be omitted from your service experience.

While every effort is made to provide accurate information, travel visa and passport requirements are constantly changing and there may be a delay before we are advised of such changes. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee complete accuracy at all times. Processing times and charges given are solely for guidance purposes and cannot be guaranteed. Where ‘no’ travel visa is indicated, we recommend this information be confirmed by the carrier and the relevant embassy or consulate. CIBT recommends that travel visas be obtained before travel. Where information for travel visas upon arrival are given, we always recommend confirmation of this information with the airline and embassy or high commission prior to travel. Travel arrangements should not be confirmed prior to the visa or passport being issued, unless they are a specifically required for that high commission. In such cases, refundable arrangements should be made.
