Visa requirements and letter of invitation

General information

Visitors from outside the European Union (EU) should check whether or not a visa is required.  Moreover, visitors from central and eastern Europe should check whether or not special health insurance is required for receiving a visa. All insurance and visa costs must be borne by the participant.

Visa information

You do not need a visa to land in Ireland if you are a citizen of the EEA (European Economic Area). The EEA comprises the member states of the European Union, in addition to Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein.
Participants from outside these countries should check well in advance whether a visa is required.

Letter of invitation

Participants that require an official letter of invitation in order to obtain a visa, to raise travel funds or for administrative purposes should apply for this invitation by at least 8 weeks prior to the meeting at the very latest. It should be understood, however, that such an invitation is not a commitment on the part of the organisers to provide financial support. The deadline for requesting a letter of invitation was 10 July 2017.

It should be understood that the organisers can only issue an invitation which includes the period of the conference plus the Saturdays and Sundays directly before and after the conference, respectively.
