  • After sending, an error may show up in case something went wrong or there are missing or incorrect fields filled in.
  • Sending to SEF can also be configured to be automatic. In this case, Hostkit (former SIGA) will send the immigration details on the day after the guests arrival, at the time you indicate. This is to make sure that you have enough time to confirm that the guests have in fact been checked in and that the data can be sent, safely.
