> Dear all,
> We the below mentioned Penholders, on behalf of the ATLAS III awardees,
> refer to the announcement of the ATLAS III travel support selected
> participants, among which are 19 people from Africa.
> Aside being selected, the intended purpose of training future leaders for
> At Large cannot be achieved if the selected participants can not get visas
> to attend the scheduled conference and training during the ICANN 66 at
> Montreal in Canada. It must be indicated that getting visas to Canada from
> our various embassies across Africa is cumbersome. In this regard, we wish
> to make the following suggestions on behalf of all the African 19
> delegates, which can make it easier for us to get our visas:
> 1. ICANN or the host entity to write directly to the various embassies
> of the selected participants well in advance to introduce the
> participants. There must be acknowledgement for receipt of this
> introduction letters from the embassies.
> 2. The various invitation letters must clearly indicate that ICANN is
> fully sponsoring the participants, listing that airfare, accommodation and
> stipend will be fully provided to each participant.
> This is very important because the embassies would like to know if the
> participants can have enough funds for the trip. In fact, it’s even a
> requirement for the participants to provide their bank account statement
> showing evidence of enough funds, hence if it’s indicated that the
> participants are going to be fully sponsored the better.
> It must be noted that acquiring the visa can take close to 12 weeks in
> some countries, hence, the earlier the processes are started, including
> implementing the above mentioned suggestions, the better for the African
> delegates to get their visas and attend the trainings.
> We are counting on your utmost support in this regard.
