Dear Delegates, Veterinarians and Friends,

Registration for the IAF Delegates Council meeting 2014 Doha, Qatar will close on 31st December 2013. Anyone attempting to register after that date will be unsuccessful. 

We ask the delegates who have not yet sent the scan of their passport to do so immediately. Some 34 countries can just get a passport stamp at Doha airport, but all other countries need visa approval in advance and we have been applying for you based on your passport scan. Please do not pay for flight or accommodation until you know whether your visa application has been successful or not. You will be informed as soon as we receive information from the Ministry.

For those 34 countries who do NOT need a visa in advance (see list below), please note there is a charge for the passport stamp on arrival in Doha airport. By emailing us your passport scan we can arrange a fast-track processfor you so you can avoid this and the long queue as well.

If you wish to use the 25% discount that ours hosts have arranged with Qatar Airways please go to their website . The user name: Falconry and the password is: FVACQatar123

Please send your flight information when you book your flight to so we can pick you up at the airport.
