Pro­cess­ing of Visas, es­pe­cially for a large group, is the big­gest chal­lenge. Guid­ing ev­ery par­tic­i­pant about the right doc­u­men­ta­tion is an­other chal­lenge as del­e­gates come from di­verse ed­u­ca­tional and ge­o­graph­i­cal back­grounds and many of them are first-time trav­ellers.

DUBAI For Dubai, an eVisa is is­sued and a Ho­tel/DMC takes re­spon­si­bil­ity to up­date the air­line with the PNR of the re­spec­tive del­e­gate to put an ‘ok to board’ mes­sage which al­lows them to take the flight from In­dia for Dubai. It is nec­es­sary to carry a print of the visa.

THAI­LAND For Thai­land, In­dian trav­ellers can ei­ther ap­ply and get the visa be­fore their travel or sim­ply fly to Thai­land and se­cure the visa-on ar­rival at the air­port. Del­e­gates need to en­sure they have valid pass­ports, and abide by the im­mi­gra­tion rule of car­ry­ing enough money in cash. Visa ap­pli­ca­tion and pro­cess­ing takes about 15 min­utes but saves the or­gan­is­ers from lo­gis­ti­cal prob­lems.

CANADA For Canada, del­e­gates must en­sure that they carry right documents as spec­i­fied from the em­bassy, which gives enough time to the agency to co­or­di­nate with the em­bassy for their de­ci­sion.

For Thai­land, In­dian del­e­gates can ei­ther get the visa be­fore their travel or fly to Thai­land and se­cure the visa-on ar­rival at the air­port
