Local Participants please register here


530 participants provided their visa details to the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) by 22 August 2018. The LOC submitted the list to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India, for political clearance.

Political clearance has so far been obtained for all the delegates (Approved List)

The list of the remaining delegates have been forwarded to MEA for obtaining political clearances and we are waiting for their response.

Please note that when you apply for visa at your nearest Indian Embassy / Consulate, you will be asked for 3 documents, namely ;

(1) Invitation letter from organizer
(2) Political clearance from Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India
(3) Clearance from Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Government of India

The first two documents have already been sent to the delegates of the first list. Regarding the third document, it is not required for most of the countries except few. If it is required, a separate communication will be sent to the concerned.

Persons who did not register with the local organizers for a visa by 22 August and who are not included in any of above 2 lists, need to proceed with the online visa application and have to make a visa appointment at their nearest Indian Consulate/Embassy where they have to provide the invitation letter from the organizer.
