Travel of Steering Committee members, receivers of scholarships, and speakers

We will book flights for Steering Committee members, those receiving a travel grant from us, and speakers. Please do not book your own travel in these cases. Please indicate your preferences for departure day and time, which airport, an airline, etc. in the respective fields of the registration form. Also, provide your preferred return day and time. The travel agency will try to book your flights according to your preferences, taking also into account costs as our non-profit organization has a very limited budget.

Except for Yellow fever which is explained below, Kenya does not require vaccinations from travelers from most of the world. However, in many countries, there is a traveler clinic where you can check what type of Vaccines they advise as a precaution before traveling to Kenya. Giora visited Nairobi recently to inspect the hotels and received 4 vaccines without any issue. For further information, we suggest you speak with your doctor.
Yellow Fever Vaccine, special note: This is required only for visitors from selected countries where Yellow Fever is of high risk and you will find them listed below. However please note that CML patients from these countries cannot receive this vaccine and they will need an exemption letter from their Doctor. See this link for all information about vaccines:  

Important Notes

Some of you may have some concerns about the location and what is required in regards to vaccines and visas. Nairobi has hosted thousands of visitors from over 180 countries from all over the world including many influential leaders. Kenya has more than 1 Million tourists visits each year and was declared as a top destination for 2018 by travel firms. Nairobi is currently hosting the Blue Economy Conference alongside Canada and France and the hotels in Nairobi including our conference hotel - The Crown Plaza, are distinguished modern Western Hotels with very high standards.
