I received a hotel confirmation on ICANN letterhead on Jan 17th, 
along with a very detailed description of how to complete the visa 
application (copy attached here). I think that this is the guide 
referred to in red on your wiki page.

The only thing that was not crystal clear to me was what to fill in 
3.6 on Major Family Members. I thought that it was only for family 
travelling with you, but they want just what they are asking for. 
Specifically, if earlier say you are married, you should include your 
spouse here.
