Hello Mosaab,

Replying to [ticket:541 moceap]:

about (hotel: $200, travel $900)

Could you please provide travel fare via Mumbai airport? Not Goa.

Thank you.

I can find Sanaa to Mumbai through Yemenia Air ways, But I can't find any Sanaa to Pune via Mumbai.

We will be arranging for cabs to get people from Mumbai to Pune (and return after the event), so you need to find the cost from Sanaa to Mumbai and back.

Thanks, so the return flight cost between Sana'a and Mumbai is about $600. We'll use that information during our next meeting.

I noticed your selected dates are 23rd to 30th. I wanted to clarify that if we decide to support cost of accommodation, it will only be for the duration of the conference, i.e. checking in on 25th evening and checking out by 29th morning.

But Arriving at 3.10 morning of 26 Jun !!

Hello Mosaab,

We are considering your request of $600 as per 541#comment:8 above.[1] We wanted to confirm, considering the current political turmoil in Yemen, you think your air travel for FUDCon will not be affected by it?

Thank you.

Yes , situation in Yemen now isn't stable. So airports are stopped.

I'll be out of Yemen in 7~10 days, and I'll update my ticket info.

Regards.

[Reminder #3]

Hello Mosaab,

To confirm,
1. Have you applied for and received the Indian visa for FUDcon travel?

  1. Please book your tickets in time and attach them here for later reimbursement purposes.
    Confirmed itinerary(timings) will help us in planning cab pick-ups from Mumbai to Pune.

Thank you.

There has been no update since our budget approval for travel and it might be too late to even file for a visa. Even the budget approved for travel may no longer be sufficient for a ticket booking now.

If there is no response to this ticket by end of day (Indian time) tomorrow, I'll close this ticket and consider this request dropped. I understand that it might be a struggle to manage all this given the state of affairs in the region, but it would be difficult for us to arrange for anything with such unpredictability.

Hello everyone,

I was so exciting to talk in this FUDcon, but my situation don't allow me for that.

I was in Sanaa before the war that started there and I entered to Saudi Arabia for a while, and till now I can't get a re-entry visa to Saudi Arabia.

So, Reach everyone in FUDcon Pune my greetings.

Mosaab.

Thank you for the update Mosaab; it would have been a pleasure to host you. Take care and hope to meet you in another conference.
