Travel & Visa
Getting to the Host City
IEEE CAMSAP 2015 will take place at the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Resort in Cancun, Mexico. The host city of Cancun is served by Cancun International Airport (CUN), which is Mexico's second busiest airport and which is connected to over 30 countries in North, Central, South America and Europe.
Getting to the Workshop Venue
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Resort is situated in the heart of Cancun's hotel zone and is about 13 miles from Cancun International Airport (CUN). There are several online resources, including one from the TripAdvisor, that provide information for travel from CUN to the hotel zone. In addition:
There is a taxi service from CUN to Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Resort that can be reserved by sending an email to the hotel concierge at email@example.com. The cost of this taxi service is 750 pesos (approximately 53 US dollars).
The workshop organizers have arranged with a local travel company to provide paid (by the attendees) transfers to the workshop attendees from the airport to the hotel and back. The same travel company will also provide paid private tours of Cancun to the workshop attendees. In order to make reservations for these hotel transfers and/or tours, please use the following link: http://www.tropicalincentives.com/form_gpos/sales/cancun/2015/ieee/.
Citizens from a large number of countries do not require a visa to visit Mexico. A list of these countries is available from the following link: http://www.inm.gob.mx/index.php/page/Paises_No_Visa/en.html.
Any foreigner who has any of the following documents also does not require a visa to visit Mexico: A document certifying permanent residence in Canada, USA, Japan, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or any of the countries of the Schengen Area; valid visa from the United States of America.
All other workshop attendees do require a visa to visit Mexico (see http://www.inm.gob.mx/index.php/page/Paises_Visa/en.html for a list of countries whose citizens require Mexican visa). While the workshop organizers cannot provide assistance in securing a Mexican visa, we will provide an invitation letter, if needed, to workshop attendees needing a Mexican visa. In order to obtain such a letter, one must be first registered for the workshop and then should send an email to the Local Arrangements Chair.
