The 2013 IFDS Annual General Meeting will be held in the Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
The deadline for receipt of submissions to the IFDS c/o ISAF Secretariat is 0900 UTC, 17 September 2013.
It is the responsibility of all committee members and observers to ensure that they have both a valid passport and entry visa if required.
All visitors (except those with Gulf Co-Operation Council passports) require a visa to enter Oman. Visas can be obtained on arrival at Muscat International airport. All visitors require a passport with spare pages valid for six months (or a year for a multiple entry visa), onward or return tickets and all documents needed for the next destination. Gulf States nationals need only their National Identity Card for entry. Visitors with visas for Dubai and Qatar do not need a visa for Oman.
Arriving passengers who are eligible for Visa on Arrival are able to make visa payments at the Travelex Foreign Exchange bureau located in the immigration arrivals hall. The cost of a Visa on arrival is OMR20.00 for a month and only OMR5.00 for10 days.
Payments cannot be made on credit card so please make sure you bring cash with you. An automatic receipt will be issued to the traveller which should then presented at the immigration desk. This reduces the time and queues for processing.
