The World Administrators’ Summit is a 2 day working session, not a conference. Only formal country Delegates may attend the WA-Summit and each country may have up to three (3) Delegates. All Delegates must have completed a Delegate Credentialing Form and been accepted as a Delegate by the Advisory Council prior to attending the summit.

This is your event and your chance to participate in shaping your profession throughout the world and for the future. We appreciate your input on discussion topics (you can now read the Interim Agenda) and your views through surveys and online engagement enabling the summit discussions to take place meaningfully.

Visa Information for entering New Zealand

Not all countries are eligible to enter New Zealand with only the online electronic visa (NZeTA). Those countries not eligible will need an actual physical visa.

Each Delegate is responsible for obtaining their own entry visa. However, the Advisory Council will, on your request and once you have completed your Delegate Credentialing form, provide a letter of invitation to attend the WA-Summit in New Zealand, if one is required.

If you require a visa be sure to start the visa application process early so you have sufficient time to complete the process. If you require a visa we strongly recommend that you complete your Delegate Credentialing form and request your letter of invitation as soon as possible. In some cases, your passport may need to be sent away to the nearest New Zealand Embassy for the visa to be entered.
