South Africa requires citizens from many foreign countries to obtain visas to enter the country. If you are not a citizen and plan to attend ICE 2018, please ensure you obtain the correct visa to enter the country. To find out whether you need a visa and how to apply, we recommend that you check with your nearest South African Embassy or other diplomatic representative before you travel. Alternatively, please visit the website for the South African Department of Home Affairs (www.home-affairs.gov.za).
Obtaining a Visa
If you are required to obtain a visa for entry into the South Africa, it is your responsibility to apply for a passport, visa, or any other required documents and to demonstrate to consular officials that you are properly classifiable as a visitor under South African law. ICE Show Management cannot assist you with the interview process, nor can anyone representing the sponsoring organization call an embassy or consular on your behalf to provide support for granting a visa. Should your application be denied, Show Management can neither intervene in the process nor change the decision of the governmental agency. You may request a letter by selecting the box either online or on the printed registration form. Invitation letters will be sent to those that are registered and fully paid. ICE Show Management supplies this letter for visa purposes only. All expenses involved with attending the conference are the responsibility of the attending party. If your visa application is denied and AAPG receives a copy of the denial by email or fax +1 918 560 2684 before 31 October 2018 your registration fee will be refunded, less a $75 processing fee.
Registering with your Embassy
ICE Show Management suggests tourists register with their country’s consulate or embassy when travelling.
