Stay within our block for discounted pricing and other perks! Visit our online portal to see all 7 hotel options with a range of prices and remember to book your room by October 22, 2018 to secure these discounted rates. Contact Dana Ronan at dronan@accessintel.com with any questions.

To reserve your room for CLEAN GULF, visit our online portal and book by October 22, 2018

NOTE: The hotels require a deposit equal to one night’s room and tax to hold accommodations. Your credit card will be charged when reservation is made. Deposits are refundable if accommodations are cancelled by the hotel’s listed cancellation policy. Forms received without a form of payment will not be processed. To take advantage of special CLEAN GULF hotel rates, be sure to book your reservations no later than October 22, 2018. Hotel requests received after this date will be processed based on availability and rate. We cannot guarantee discounted rates after this date.

Please note: CLEAN GULF has designated MCI USA as the only housing provider for CLEAN GULF. There are fraudulent companies and organizations that will try to present themselves as official partners of CLEAN GULF and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed or available. Should you be contacted by someone other than MCI USA or CLEAN GULF, please let us know.

BEWARE of Housing Scams – we have received a number of complaints regarding calls many of you are receiving from companies claiming to be the official housing company for Clean Gulf. Those are scams. Plenty of rooms are still available and you will not receive calls concerning this. Do not be sucked in. Typically they require that you pay for the full stay upfront and there’s no guarantee you will have a reservation when you show up.

Travel Visas


provided by:

The Board on International Scientific Organizations

As a standard part of the visa process, the State Department is now requiring that consular officers interview almost every applicant. Some consulates may have a long wait for an interview so applicants should contact the consulate to schedule an interview as early as possible. Furthermore, many visa applications are sent to the State Department in Washington, D.C. to be reviewed by several agencies. Because of the number of visa applications and the need for thorough security reviews, the process can take several months. Therefore, it is advisable for travelers to apply for their visas as early as possible (at least three to four months before the visa is needed). Contact the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy in your country for details on visa application procedures at that post.
