What You Need To Know

Everyone entering Ireland must have a valid passport, or in the case of European Union Member States, a national identity card. Visas are required for some countries. Delegates should check with their local Irish representation prior to their departure.

Please note that it can take up to 8 weeks to process a visa application and early application is recommended. You will need to register for the conference, pay your registration and accommodation fees in full before a letter from the conference organisers will be issued to support your visa application. Consular offices will only accept a visa letter if it states that the delegate has registered for the conference and paid their registration fee

and accommodation rates in full. The Consular offices will only accept original letters so please allow time for us to post the visa letter to you. The conference host cannot accept any responsibility for visa applications. Where a delegate is unable to attend because of failure to obtain a visa on time, the normal cancellation policy for registration fees and accommodation will apply.
