Terms and Conditions

The organizers reserve the right to refuse admission unless proof of payment is received.

Registered attendees may be substituted not less than one week prior to the event. Please notify via ask@wamsconference.com.

Notifications to withdraw should reach the Australian High Commission no later than 72 hours after registration to receive a partial (50%) refund of the registration fee. Notifications received thereafter will not be entitled to a refund.

All accommodation arrangements must be made directly by conference participants. To obtain corporate rates at the conference venue (hotel) please advise the hotel you are attending the conference at the time of reservation.

Visas are the responsibility of conference participants. ECOWAS nationals do not require a visa to enter Ghana. For most other nationals, including Australians, visas must be obtained in advance in the participant’s usual country of residence.
For further information on visa requirements, contact your nearest Ghanaian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. We can provide visa support letters if required. Please contact wams@dfat.gov.au.

It is an entry requirement to Ghana that travellers are fully COVID-19 vaccinated and present a valid yellow fever vaccination card on arrival. Participants should also consider using malaria prophylaxis in Ghana where the disease is endemic. For further information on health and vaccinations, consult your medical professional or the World Health Organisation’s advice for travellers.

The WAMS Conference will be held under strict Chatham House Rules. Speakers or participants may not be cited publicly or in publicly available documents.
