Work Efforts

The GAC regularly considers a broad range of public policy issues impacting the DNS and other matters regarding the functions of ICANN. This work can result in consensus advice for the ICANN Board or public comment guidance to the ICANN community. This part of the website shares information related to those ongoing topics and activities.

Status: Active
Related Topics:
  • Approved dates of arrival and departure

Arrival Date: 12 June 2022

  • Visa Resources

ICANN org will continue to have Newland Chase as its primary resource to assist in visa application reviews. Invitation letters and local host letters are available for funded travelers upon registration.

As a reminder - funded travelers are provided a unique registration link (not the public form) to ensure the proper letters are issued. The funded traveler registration link will be provided in their “Travel Funding Confirmation Email” from ICANN Travel Support. ICANN will also provide hotel and flight confirmations for visa purposes. Funded travelers who require a visa to enter the Netherlands will receive specific instructions from ICANN.

  • Waiver [NEW for ICANN74]

Funded Travelers are expected to sign an acknowledgement and waiver for ICANN74.
This acknowledgement and waiver is built in the ICANN74 Registration for anyone that is registering for in-person participation.
Funded Travelers will need to register using this specific link which will be sent on their “Travel Funding Confirmation Email.”
Funded travelers are expected to comply with the acknowledgement and waiver. If they are unable or unwilling to agree to these terms, they are able to participate in the meeting remotely and their request to have travel funding will be provided to another person.

ICANN org will provide more information about the specific support that will be offered to Funded Travelers in the case of emergencies or other non-standard situations. Funded travelers can read the acknowledgment and waiver in the documentation section of this page.

Note: The acknowledgement includes that Funded Travelers have read, understand, and agree to comply with the Community Travel Support Guidelines: https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/community-travel-support-guidelines-01jul20-en.pdf 

  • Travel Arrival Measures

As with all international travel, 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. 

To see travel requirements to enter the Netherlands based on their location, visit https://reizentijdenscorona.rijksoverheid.nl/en.

ICANN is committed to ensuring an inclusive Policy Forum that provides an equal opportunity for all to engage on important policy matters. If funded travelers are not eligible or cannot meet the entry requirements as outlined by the government of the Netherlands, we are confident they will find the virtual participation experience equally as engaging. 

  • Concur [new]

During the pandemic, ICANN org used this opportunity to make some enhancements for funded travelers experience. All funded travelers are now able to book their travel using Concur, an online travel booking tool. Previous booking options with a live person agent with FCM are still available to Funded Travelers.
Instructions on how to book travel will be provided to funded travelers who are confirmed and eligible.
