Travelling to “Azawad” - is it possible at present?
Mali has refused to acknowledge the Azawadi Declaration of Independence and so the visa that you get (as per Mali rules) will entitle you to visit Timbuktu (so you can get the visa from Mali Consulate). However, the real trouble will be getting inside Timbuktu on that visa as it is now a part of Azawadi and the local authority might deny you entry as they no longer associate themselves with Mali. I would suggest it's better to let the situation calm down a bit and then plan a trip later.
