VISA & INVITATION LETTERS
ERA will provide an invitation letter after the registration to the conference is finalized and paid. The invitation letter will be available online at your web.profile. The invitation letter will be in English and will be a valid document for University, Hospital, Industry and any professional requirement. The invitation letter is NOT valid as a VISA support letter.
Depending on your citizenship, you may need to obtain a VISA to enter Italy. For detailed information, visit the website of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: http://vistoperitalia.esteri.it/home/en
It is the delegate’s responsibility to investigate the VISA requirements for Italy and to apply for a VISA, if necessary. The conference organizers and/or the Organizing Secretariat will not directly contact embassies and consulates on behalf of VISA applicants despite Embassies to require it.
VISA should be requested at least 2 months before departure, you can apply also later but it is not sure it will be released on time, as the application process can take several weeks.
The invitation letter and all necessary information to apply for VISA can be requested to the Organizing Secretariat at the e-mail address: VISA@aimgroup.eu.
Please always enclose passport copy, hotel confirmation and registration confirmation to your request of VISA support. Please also specify what embassy is meant to receive your application. (ITA Embassy of what city/country)
