In order to enter France, an identity card is sufficient for participants from EU-member countries. All other participants need a valid passport to enter the European Union. Visas may be required for participants from some countries. Please contact your nearest French embassy at least twelve weeks prior to your departure for full visa requirements.
Invitation letter for visa applications
International participants may need an official letter of invitation from the ISPRM 2018 Secretariat in order to obtain a visa for entry into the European Union. When you register for ISPRM 2018, please tick the appropriate box to indicate that you require such a letter. You will be asked to provide your passport number, date of birth, date of passport issue and expiry date. You will receive your official letter of invitation automatically by email. Invitation letters will not be sent by mail.
If you require an official invitation letter in order to obtain a visa, please make sure to register for the Congress as early as possible and at least twelve weeks prior to your departure in order to receive all paperwork in time. Please note that your registration fees are refundable if your visa application is denied as long as proof of visa denial is submitted to the ISPRM 2018 Secretariat prior to the Congress.
Please be advised that the ISPRM 2018 Secretariat will not be able to contact or intervene with any French embassy or consulate office abroad on your behalf.
