15th Western Hemisphere Regional Conference

Travel to Grenada

All participants are advised to book flights to arrive at Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND), Grenada by 16:00 on 8 July 2019. This is to enable participants who have to apply for a visa on arrival to have enough time, go through immigration, collect bags, travel to the hotel, register, check in and attend the Welcome Reception. 

You will have to add your flight details during your registration. If you haven’t booked your flight when you register, we will provide you a link where you’ll be able to add the information later.


Travellers with Special Needs

Travellers with special needs, especially those with limited mobility, should note that disabled access is not widely available. Hilly terrain, narrow sidewalks, and accessibility on public transportation may present challenges. Please ensure you notify us of any such needs when registering so that we do our best to provide assistance.  

Wheelchairs and assistance are available at Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND).


Airport Transfers

All participants arriving on Monday 8 July 2019 will be met on arrival at the Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) by members from Girls Guides Association of Grenada.

Arrangements will also be made for you for your departure on Saturday 13 July or Sunday 14 July 2019, for those booking a tour.
