Visa Information

Participants requiring a visa for entry to Switzerland are strongly advised to apply for it in their home country at least two months before the intended date of travel. As visa requirements vary for each country, please contact the nearest Swiss Embassy, Consulate or travel agency for more information. In addition, those who do not fly directly to Switzerland should note that a transit visa might be required for some countries in order to continue their travel to Switzerland.

If a letter of invitation is needed for the visa application, the Conference Secretariat can send this upon request (mark on registration form).
Abuse: Participants requesting a visa invitation letter may be requested to justify their interest in the conference. If abuse is suspected we reserve the right to ignore the request.
The letter of invitation does not represent a commitment on the part of the Organizers to provide financial support.
