For more details, consult the ccNSO Travel Fund Guideline: https://ccnso.icann.org/en/about/ccnso-draft-oisc-07jun21-en.pdf Consult the ICANN Community Travel Support Guidelines here: https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/community-travel-support-guidelines-01jul20-en.pdf ICANN might require funded Travelers to sign an acknowledgement and waiver, built in the meeting registration for anyone that is registering for in-person participation. Instructions on how to book travel will be provided by ICANN Travel Support to funded travelers who are confirmed and eligible.
TRAVEL ARRIVAL MEASURES. All travelers have a responsibility to understand the entry and exit requirements of their travel and determine if they can meet those requirements before committing to the travel. Travelers may review specific travel requirements by visiting https://apply.joinsherpa.com/map or their local government international traveler websites. ICANN is committed to ensuring inclusive Public Meetings that provide an equal opportunity for all to engage. If funded travelers are not eligible or cannot meet the entry requirements as outlined by the government of the meeting location, ICANN aims to offer an engaging virtual participation experience.
