Letter of Invitation

Individuals requiring an official Letter of Invitation can request one via the online registration form. The Letter of Invitation does not financially obligate the Congress organizers in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the Congress are the sole responsibility of the attendee.

To receive a Letter of Invitation, participants must be fully registered to the Congress and payment in full must be submitted. Letters will only be sent electronically by Email. Any costs for express mailing of documents must be covered by the participant.

Visa Requirements

Portugal, an EU Member State and member of the Schengen Area, has issued Schengen Visas since 1995.  Inhabitants of the Schengen countries can move freely within the Schengen area without having to go through border checkpoints. However, they still must have their passports or identification cards with them when travelling.

Visitors from other countries must have passports valid for at least six months after the date of arrival and, in some cases, a visa. The list of countries whose citizens require a visa in order to visit Portugal can be found here.

Please note that it is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of his / her visa requirements. Attendees who require an entry visa must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Attendees should contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications.

It is recommended that delegates apply for a visa at least 3 months in advance of the Congress, if required.
