CONFINTEA VI registration process re-opened

As stated in the communiqué of 15 June 2009, CONFINTEA VI is to take place in Belém do Pará, Brazil, from 1 to 4 December 2009. Invitations previously issued by UNESCO will remain valid. However, it is important to note that all participants, including those who had already registered earlier this year, must register again.

All members of National Delegations and the official representatives of invited institutions must register online in order to confirm their participation at the Conference: only participants who have registered online will be considered to have confirmed their attendance. The online registration is also an important means of guaranteeing the accuracy and efficiency of logistical arrangements and to ensure the quality of services provided during the Conference.

: Please bear in mind that you may need a visa a) for Brazil and b) for any countries through which you transit on your way to Brazil. We recommend that you check official information on entry visas to Brazil online. A personal letter of invitation required for your application for an entry visa to Brazil can be requested through the online registration form. The name you provide should be identical to the one in the passport on which you will be travelling. Should you have any questions regarding visa, please contact UNESCO Brazil Office.

Registration Codes: Each Member State or invited institution will receive an e-mail containing a single registration code which must be used for each member of the delegation. This code is required for starting the registration process. Registration codes sent out prior to the postponement of the Conference in May will remain unchanged.

Should you have any problems with your registration code, please contact the Local Organising Committee.
