Betreff:        [Iraq Social Forum] IMPORTANT,        international participants and visa issues

Dear all,

our call for the ISF has been spread through the ICSSI and NCCI newsletters too, and more internationals are registering. We are now at 23 international participants registered for ISF in Baghdad (plus 3 Iraqis who registered here by mistake) and 18 VERY INTERESTING PROPOSALS for the Extended ISF. You find all registrations in the attachment, please check who's there from your country. I'm not sending you personal information of participants but email address is there, please do not share this file with others.

Some of them will have problems in accessing Iraqi Embassies, since one is not present in their country (e.g. Croatia, in Europe), or they cannot reach it (e.g. people of Christian Peacemaker Team in KRG cannot go back to their country to get the visa and would need to travel directly from Sulaymanyia to Baghdad). For all these reasons, and to avoid complicated and differentiated procedures, it would be much better for all participants to receive a visa letter from Iraqi authorities, and get the visa at Baghdad airport. We need to know from the ISF Committee in Baghdad if this is possible for all internationals, or if we should send you specific information on visa problems of each participant.

We need to decide very soon if we should send an official invitation letter to international registered participants (signed by an officially registered Iraqi NGO) and tell them to apply for visa at the closest Iraqi embassy, or not.

Thanks to our Iraqi friends for figuring this out, I know it's terribly complicated to get a clear reply from Iraqi authorities!!!
