Visa Requirements

If you require an invitation letter for your visa application please get in contact with the Symposium secretariat in advance of your departure to Cork. The visa application may require weeks to be finalised so you should check with your local Irish embassy or consulate.  Please be advised you will be sent an invitation letter only after receiving the full payment of your registration fee.

EU Citizens and Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa are simply required to show a passport, valid for at least 6 months.

All non-EU citizens should contact their local embassies for specific requirements. For a list of Irish Embassies click here. Please note that Ireland and the UK are not part of the Schengen agreement.
