travel advice about Coronavirus (COVID‑19)
Some people may require a visa to visit the United Kingdom. To find out whether you need a visa to visit London and how to apply, please click here to check if you need a visa, or check with your local British Embassy or other diplomatic representative before you travel. The rules change regularly, so you should check you have the most up-to-date information for your trip.
Information on visitor visas and how to apply for one can be found on the UK Visas and Immigration website. Entry to the country as a visitor is only granted for a limited period. If you plan to stay in London for longer, check the UK Visas and Immigration website for visa regulations and further details.
A Letter of Invitation is a proof for conference registration and attendance application. It will be stated in English and may help with your visa application. However, it does not guarantee you a visa. Invitation letters will only be issued once your registration and payment have been confirmed. And it will be sent by e-mail.
For those who require a visa, please note that the Organizing Committee has no control over the visa application process, or the decision of the visa adjudicator in the embassy or consulate. The conference cannot be responsible for actual visa issuances. The process length varies from individuals, you're strongly advised to start your application as soon as you can.
Should your application be denied, we cannot change the decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, nor will we engage in discussion or correspondence with the MOFA or the Embassy on behalf of the applicant.
