About your travel to SEIN

Please note:

  • Do not start your preparations for travel to SEIN until the arrangements for your diagnostic programme have been finalised. 
  • The diagnostic programme must be paid in full before you travel.

Travel arrangements

  • You will need to arrange for a travel visa (Schengen Visa) from the nearest Dutch Embassy. SEIN is unable to apply for this visa on your behalf - Schengen Visa states that the traveller must do this in person. 
  • Once your visa has been granted, please inform SEIN. We will then set an admission date. 
  • Please do not book your flight until the admission date has been verified!
  • When booking your flight, please also ensure that you have travel insurance which covers medical costs abroad. 
  • Please inform SEIN who will be travelling with you,  and your relationship to this person (i.e. your doctor, a relative ...). Please note: we advise only one accompanying person!
  • Although SEIN will arrange for a translator when required, for ease of communication we advise that at least one of you (either yourself or your travel companion) is able to communicate in English.  

Hotel accommodation

SEIN can book a nearby hotel for you and your travelling companion at a discount: the Ambassador City Centre Hotel. This hotel is situated in the city centre of Haarlem, a short journey from Heemstede. This hotel has both regular rooms and appartments/studio's with cooking facilities. 

You are also free to book your own hotel accommodation. However, in order to keep the journey time of the taxi transfers from the hotel to SEIN as short as possible, we would advise that you book this hotel in the city of Haarlem. The hotel discount is only given when booked through SEIN.
