  1. Reporting and Administration. Participants must complete and submit a Personal Administration Form (PAF) electronically to JWC Real Life Support (RLS) no later than the last submission date stated for the event as listed in paragraph 1. If the PAF is submitted after the deadline, personnel will be responsible for obtaining their own accommodation. An electronic version of the PAF can be found at the following WISE link on NATO Secret:

The PAF template can also be found on the front page of the JWC unclassified home page:

    1. Completed PAFs should be sent by one of the following means:


        2. Unclassified e-mail:

        3. Fax: +47 5287 9259

    1. Please ensure your PAF is completely filled out prior to submission. All PAF information is crucial as it is the main tool for the planning of all logistic support (transportation, accommodation, catering, etc.). Phone numbers and e-mail addresses will only be used to clarify information provided or in case of emergency.

  1. Accommodation. JWC has pre-booked both military and civilian (Hotels) accommodation for IAPDT 12/02 participants (both SMEs and Training Audience). Participants must indicate their preferred accommodation on the PAF. JWC RLS will provide specific accommodation instructions by e-mail to all participants shortly after the PAF deadline.

  1. Prices for accommodation will be approximately:

    1. Military: 25 EUR in a shared room (OF4 and below) and 30 Euros in single room (Limited to OF 5 and above)

    2. Hotels: 160 to 190 EUR

  1. Note that the availability of military accommodation is limited, will be assigned on a “first come, first served” basis and may result in some personnel who requested military quarters necessarily being accommodated in hotels. Letters of non-availability for military accommodation will NOT be provided except for those participants that had requested but could not be lodged in military facilities

  1. Upon receiving the PAF, JWC RLS will provide accommodation information via e-mail to each individual. For personnel assigned to a hotel, the individual must notify/contact the respective hotel and secure the reservation with their credit card in order to avoid cancellation. Please also confirm the quoted rate upon securing the reservation and again upon check-in. Any changes to the information submitted in the PAF (for example, arrival or departure time), please notify the hotel directly and inform JWC RLS.

  1. Participants electing not to use the accommodation options provided by JWC RLS will have to make own accommodation arrangements. Those individuals will also be responsible for their daily transportation to the JWC training facility or to find their way to one of the designated transportation pick up points (see paragraph 5).

  1. Disclaimer

  1. Due to the limited availability of commercial accommodations in Stavanger, JWC RLS creates a block booking with local hotels. Once your PAF has been received by JWC RLS, your name is provided to the hotel. The individual is required to confirm the hotel rate and dates (arrival and departure date) with the hotel and secure the room by providing credit card information. Note that the credit card information provided to the hotel will only be used as a guarantee for the room reserved.

  1. The hotel booking arrangement is concluded as soon as the room has been confirmed and secured by the individual. When this is done the booking becomes an obligation between the individual and the hotel. The individual is responsible for cancelling the room should they not participate. They are also required to notify the hotel directly with any changes in travel dates. However, changes to arrival caused by delay or late rescheduling of NATO arranged travel will be communicated to hotel by JWC RLS.

  1. Once the hotel booking arrangement is confirmed and secured, both parties are obliged to fulfil the guidelines laid down in the Norwegian hotel regulations (Norsk Hotellov). If the individual does not make use of the accommodation facilities as agreed when confirming the room, he/she is obliged to pay the standard agreed price. i.e.: no-show without any notice to hotel after confirmation of reservation with credit card information will allow the hotel to deduct payment for one night from your credit card.

  1. Transportation. JWC will provide transportation to and from Stavanger airport if it is requested in the PAF. (Personnel considering use of a taxi from the Stavanger airport to downtown hotels can expect a taxi fare of approximately 55-60 EUR one way.) Daily transportation to and from the JWC training facility will be provided from two designated locations. The daily transportation will begin with pick-up on 20 SEP at 0715 from the Radisson BLU Atlantic Hotel (downtown Stavanger) and 0730 from the Madla Camp parade ground.
