1.
How can you help me to get visa?

A letter of invitation is issued solely for the purpose of assisting participants with visa applications and/or to obtain funding for their attendance at the conference. Such a letter does not imply any financial obligation on the part of the conference organizers. If you require a letter of invitation, please register and pay for the conference. Once the payment has been received, visit your registration page and click on the "Invitation Letter" button. This will then ask for full details for issuing the invitation letter. WASET.org Team will be managing invitation letters for the conference but will only be able to respond to queries if an invitation request has already been completed online.

2.
Do I need a visa to attend the conference, and if so, can the Conference Department help me with my entry visa application?

If you are unsure whether you need a visa to attend the conference, please check with your local embassy or travel agent. If you do, it is essential that you begin the process as soon as possible, in order that you obtain your visa in time for the conference or registration deadline. Subject to certain conditions, we can provide a standard invitation letter to assist you with your visa application and this should be downloaded from the registration system. We do ask though that you submit your own application to the relevant authority and follow up accordingly. Unfortunately the Project Lead is unable to follow up your application on your behalf or enter into correspondence directly with consulates.
