Guidelines for reimbursement of travel expenses

Travel expenses incurred in connection with being a co-examiner can be refunded.

As a general rule, public transport must be used, as it is usually the cheapest form of travel.

Subject to prior agreement, the department may grant you permission to drive your own car if, from an overall perspective, it is the most suitable and economical solution for the department. An assessment of this will be based on the expenses, any extra travelling time associated with public transport, and whether you will be exposed to unreasonable inconveniences (for example, if your trip starts very early or ends very late and cannot be moved).

Expenses related to driving your own car will be refunded according to the Ministry of Finance’s circular regarding business travels, but only with an amount corresponding to the cost of using public transportation. If the department gives you permission to drive your own car, costs for bridge toll, ferry, parking etc. will be refunded if documentation is provided.

First class tickets and flight tickets will not be refunded.

The use of taxis should be confined to short trips in situations where it is not suitable to use public transportation, e.g., if you have problems getting to your point of destination on time. Note that this must be done in accordance with prior agreement with the department.

Expenses for meals are only reimbursed in special cases and only by prior agreement with the department.

Pre-approved travelling beyond 24 hours will be settled according to subsistence allowance (state rates) – not as per account rendered.

In extraordinary cases, hotel rooms may be refunded, but only if booked by a study administrator at the department.

Only in exceptional cases, and subject to prior agreement with your administrative contact person at the department, it will be possible to get reimbursement for travelling to an exam if you live abroad.  Thus, if you live abroad you must make a preliminary agreement regarding your travel expenses.

Use the form below to submit information about travel expenses. 

Travel expenses form - Please attach a copy of tickets etc. when submitting the form to your administrative contact person at the Department.

If using your own car instead of public transportation is more cost- and time-effective, be sure to submit your car's registration number in the travel expenses form.

If you have any questions regarding travel expenses or would like further information on the guidelines for reimbursement, please contact the study administrators at the Department.
