CAF on Friday opened the accreditation process which will end on Thursday, August 15, 2013.
The group winners of the second round stage will discover their opponents for one of the continent's five berths at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
According to FIFA, the five best-placed sides in the 12 September 2013 edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be seeded for the draw.
Also, the drawing of lots for the final tournament of the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) will take place on Thursday, September 18 in Cairo.
Sixteen (16) qualified teams will be divided into four groups of four teams each and the seeded teams of each group will be determined by the CHAN Organising Committee on the basis of the ranking of the country.
