Changing confirmed Private Visit dates

Once we have confirmed a Private Visit (28 days before the start date), there will be a minimum charge of £300 per full day or £200 per half day to change the date(s). This covers part of the cost of paying the original examiner and searching for and booking a replacement examiner. We can only accept requests to change Private Visit dates from the Visit Organiser.
