The Local Organising Committee recommends that all participants check the websites of the Austrian embassy in their country prior to travel to ensure that they have all the necessary paperwork for travel.

Neither the Local Organising Committee nor EARIE can be held responsible for and cannot refund any registration fees for participants who fail to obtain their visas prior to travel.

Visa application support letters

If you need a Visa application support letter, the conference organizers can provide this letter once, if:

  • you have registered for the conference and
  • your registration fee has been received.

If you require a visa, please apply for it within a reasonable period of time (minimum three months before the planned travel).

Once you meet these two requirements, please send an e-mail to the conference organizers at specifying your full name and the address of the relevant embassy (consulate) where you are going to apply for a visa. Please also let us know if you are a speaker. Your request will be processed as soon as possible, and the conference invitation letter (scan) for your visa application will be e-mailed to you.

Unfortunately, we cannot send hard copies of support letters for visa applications by post, courier, or other mail services.
