If your visa application was denied this year for Wikimania, guess what!
You're automatically joining next year's Wikimania. Now you know you've
been accepted to Wikimania 2018 in South Africa, I think we all have 365
days to get our Visa.
I'm yet to learn any embassy in the world with more than a year visa
application waiting time. ZA it is!
Nice move from the WMF. Thanks Katherine.

Katherine Maher just announced at Wikimania 2017 that all scholarship
recipients who were unable to obtain a visa, will be automatically
granted a scholarship for Wikimania 2018.
