Dear Vis East Teams, Arbitrators, Sponsors and Friends
 
We had hoped to be able to return to the classic version of the Vis East Moot and welcome you to Hong Kong once again.  Alas, the Covid health threat is by no means over.  Safety and travel restrictions, even if they are lifted, may be reinstated without prior notice.  We can't ask you to make plans without being reasonably sure that you could join us.  Thus, we have no choice but to return to last year's very successful Virtual Vis East mode.   We are sad not to be able to welcome this year's participants to meet us and each other in Hong Kong. 
 
On the bright side, as with last year's VVE, the written part of the competition is unaffected and again, the oral arguments will all take place online.  Those of you who joined us for VVE last year can attest that it was a wonderful experience even without the in-person camaraderie.  And we all gained valuable experience in online cooperation and presenting arguments on-line. The Virtual format will also allow some schools who lack the financial resources for international travel to participate for the first time in the Vis East Moot.
 
Our registration fees will remain unchanged from last year.  As in past years, space in the Vis East will be limited, and all registrations must be accompanied by a deposit of HK$1500 or US$200 in order to reserve your place.  So mark your calendars now and be ready to act as soon as registrations open!

We look forward to welcoming you (virtually) to the 18th Vis East Moot and the second Virtual Vis East.
 
Sincerely
Louise, Alix and Maricel and
the Vis East Moot Foundation
