October 2021 Forum update: Visas and COVID arrangements

Following the letter to all NAOs on 9 September 2021 (here). I am pleased to provide a short update and some further details on our preparations for Forum 2022.

This will be a very important event in our history as it will be the point at which we conclude the process of developing our new strategy for the coming years. The programme will focus on finalising that strategy but also include the opportunity to meet with colleagues, share good practice and meet new and old friends.

The initial information sent in September was provided to help you budget and plan for the event. We recognise that organising foreign travel has become increasingly complex and that budgets are tight so we will continue to provide as much administrative information as we can as early as we can.

You will find below updated details of the visa requirements, processes and costs, and the current COVID requirements for Romania (which of course are subject to change as for all our countries).
