How to get there
Delegates should plan to arrive at Bagdogra or New Jalpaiguri on the day before the conference (9th November). Further details of transfers will be posted closer to the conference dates.
All foreign nationals, including children, require a valid passport and visa to enter India. Please contact your Indian local Embassy/Consulate (details can be found here) for information on visa requirements and the visa application process. Please allow sufficient time to obtain your visa (and permit - see below).
Pelling is within the designated restricted area of India and hence a special permit is also required by all non-Indian participants. Indian Embassies abroad, Representatives of Government of Sikkim at Delhi, Calcutta and Siliguri and some other offices have been authorized to issue restricted area permits to foreigners. This special permit can be obtained from your local Embassy together with your visa.
The conference organisers will supply any supporting documentation (such as letters of invitation) for your visa and permit applications. Please contact us at this address to obtain any documents. Where your local Embassy requests the name of referees in India for your visa application, please use these details:
