Considerations 11 and 12
[The Organization] advised the complainant that [...] the [host State] authorities [...] would not issue her an entry visa [...].
As the complainant’s appointment was conditional on her obtaining a work visa, her appointment was not confirmed. It follows that as she was not a UNESCO official, her complaint is irreceivable and will be dismissed.
