6. Registration and VISA Information

To register your meeting attendance, please send e-mail to Seong-Ho

Early registration of your attendance is welcome and encouraged, but 
preferably before 18 November 2005 to facilitate the production of 
badges for all participants. People needing visa support letters
(see below for requirements) should register as soon as possible.

We would remind you that citizens of some countries are required to 
obtain a visa in order to enter and spend time in Switzerland. The visa
must be requested and obtained from the office (embassy or consulate) 
representing Switzerland in your country or, if there is no such office 
in your country, from the one that is closest to the country of 
departure. If problems are encountered for ITU members, the ITU can, 
at the official request of the administration or company you represent, 
approach the competent Swiss authorities in order to facilitate 
delivery of the visa. Visa requests should be made by official letter 
from the administration or company you represent. This letter must 
specify your name and function, date of birth, passport number as well 
as the date of issue and expiry. The letter must be accompanied by a 
photocopy of your passport and completed registration form and must be 
sent to TSB, bearing the words "visa request", by fax (No.: +41 22 730

or e-mail (tsbreg at Please note that ITU needs at least 
one week to process all papers required for the delivery of a visa. For 
the ones needing this letter, TSB should receive a meeting registration 
form which can be found at:

7. Hotel Room Reservation

Participants should contact the hotels directly regarding room 
availability and for making room bookings. Hotels offering preferential 
room rates for participants of ITU meetings are found at: An appropriate hotel reservation 
form can be found at:
Please note that this hotel reservation form must be used in order to be 
able to get the special ITU rates.

Note: the closest business-class hotel to the ITU buildings is the 
Intercontinental, and a more popular strategy is to obtain hotel 
accommodations downtown, e.g., near the Cornavin train & bus station 
(which is more centrally located than the ITU or the Intercontinental), 
from which buses run frequently to the vicinity of the ITU. Not all 
hotels are equipped with high-speed internet access, so you 
participants may want to check with the hotel for the availability of
this service.

We are looking forward to meeting with you in Geneva.

Sincerely yours,

Patrick LUTHI
