Visa requirement - Invitation letter

ECET 2024: Visa and invitation letter

EU citizens, EEA (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and Swiss citizens can travel to the UK for holidays or short trips lasting less than 6 months without needing a visa.

For any other countries please see the visa requirements and further information on the official site:

Visas should be applied for well in advance of your intended departure date. Please note that while we wish to assist our participants by providing the visa invitation letter, we do not contact the Embassy or Consulate on behalf of participants and we are not in a position to influence Embassy / Consulate procedures or decisions.

Participants can request an official invitation letter via the online registration tool. The letter will only be issued to registered participants who have paid their registration fee in full. Please note that the letter aims to assist participants who need to obtain a visa, or permission to attend the conference, and is not an official invitation letter covering fees or any other expenses.
If a participant’s application for a visa is refused, the conference secretariat will refund the paid registration fees only when a copy of the refusal letter is received before 19 April 2024.

Applicants should contact the nearest local Italian Embassy or Consulate to determine the appropriate timing and conditions of the visa application.
