Medical staff will be available for the duration of the Annual Meeting. In the event of an emergency please contact staff at the King Hussein Bin Talal Conference Centre who will summon medical staff.
All persons attending the Annual Meeting should check whether they need a visa in advance of travelling to Jordan or whether it can be obtained at the airport.
The Authorities have provided the EBRD with the attached document titled ‘The World restricted and unrestricted countries’ (as at January 2018) for your initial reference.
Restricted countries are those countries whose passport holders must have a visa in advance of travel.
Unrestricted countries are those countries whose passport holders can obtain a visa at the airport.
As at January 2018, of all EBRD member states, only Albania, Moldova and Mongolia passport holders need a visa in advance of travel. All other EBRD member states can obtain a visa at the airport.
The Jordanian Authorities have kindly agreed to offer a free visa to all Annual Meeting participants, providing they produce the EBRD confirmation of registration e-mail to attend the Annual Meeting. Failing to do so will annul the free visa status whose cost will NOT be refunded by the EBRD.

Once you have fully registered, the EBRD Annual Meeting registration system will send you an EBRD confirmation of registration e-mail automatically.
