Dear All.

In addition, it was also suggested and proposed, that, with extant protocols, ICANN can initiate discussions with the Columbia Foreign Affairs Ministry for Visas to be granted to DULY ACCREDITED DELEGATES at the Port of Entry. Even where you have consulates in countries and the process cumbersome, waivers are granted for delegates to get their visas at the Port of Entry to save time.

This is possible from our experience of previous engagements in international fora.

Now is the time to start the planning.
