South Africa has visa free access for a large number of countries, however many delegates will still need to secure a visa in order to travel to Cape Town. In the cases where visas are required our team is committed to providing comprehensive visa support including all documentation and correspondence to the various consulates, embassies and High Commissions.

We are also allowing for early individual registration in the cases where potential participants would like to apply for visas well in advance to avoid delays which threaten attendance. Delegates are welcome to contact the organising committee for more visa information or to bring forward any concerns or questions.
