With my personal experience, I would not recommend boarding on a flight to
Columbia expecting to get a visa on arrival. If there is a country where people
can board on a direct flight to Cartagena that is fine but I don't think that it
applies for most of the african delegates. Two years ago, an European company
delayed my boarding of 24 hours from Benin Republic to Morroco even I had all
documents showing that I will get my visa on arrival. Boarding on a flight from
Europe or the US is not evident without a visa for the final destination.
It is like we have two options:
1) ICANN will facilitate a trip to the closest country (Egypt, Kenya, South
Africa) in Africa to get the visa for Columbia prior the departure from the
country of residence
2) I assume that mots of the itinerary will transit by Europe or the United
States. ICANN can send the names and and support letter of delegates to the
Columbia Consulates in that European/US states of transit. The delegate will get
the visa there and continue to Columbia. For the ICANN meeting in Mexico, I
transited by New-York to get my Mexico visa there. Again, it is because I
already had a US visa and I had many emails exchange, fax and phone
conversations with the Mexico embassasy in New York and get the agreement before
the trip. The candidate will have to spend probably one or two day in this
european country and this option may be less expensive.
In conclusion I just add my voice to my colleagues to say that the visa
information process should start as soon as possible.

In addition to Mr. Tijani's concerns expressed by members during the
teleconference with regards to TRANSIT.
One countries where DIRECT FLIGHTS are possible from host countries do not need
Secondly, there are a lot of foreign airlines that take passnegers to other
countries other their own (airline's countries) and do not require TRANSIT visas
to take passengers via their own country to these countries. For example, if I
were to fly to China with Emmirates, I do not need a transit visa to United Arab
Emmirates to be taken to China-supposing China were to give me an entry visa at
their Port of Entry, as slong as there is an official document from the Columbia
Forign Affairs Ministry.
The time to start this preparation is NOW.
