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 to the event, and at no charge. Please notify our office in writing.

Notifications to withdraw should reach the Australian High Commission no later than Friday 24 April 2020 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. Partnering hotels have offered corporate rates to conference participants. To obtain corporate rates, please advise the hotel that 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 visit 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 Selorm.Woeko@dfat.gov.au.

It is an entry requirement to Ghana that travellers carry a valid yellow fever vaccination card on arrival. Some airlines may also require you to present a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate before boarding. 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.
