Visa

After Cyclone Nargis in May 2008, there was a huge problem for humanitarian workers to get into the country. MSF ended up finding a route that worked for them. They found a sympathetic official in the London consulate who was either authorized to, or simply took the initiative to, issue a small number of visas per day for MSF. All sections of MSF forwarded passports to a single MSF-UK person, who trickled them through official.

This was in marked contrast to the hordes of people caught in Bangkok clamoring for access. In a certain way, the farther removed from the big noise and confusion, the better.
