The 19th ARCASIA Forum was held in Jaipur, India from 21st– 25th May 2017. A large contingent from IAP including 63 IAP Members and their accompanying persons got themselves registered for the event and applied for visa. Despite of the efforts put in by both the institutes; Indian Institute of Architects (IIA) and Institute of Architects Pakistan (IAP), the visas were not granted to any Pakistani delegate including three Office Bearers of ARCASIA (President S. M. Jahangir Khan, Honorary Secretary Ar. Ramiz Baig and Honorary Treasurer Ar. Sannah Ejaz) due to which the IAP could not take part in the event.
