Passport and Visa
Please check passport and visa requirements in due time before your departure. Three month tourist visas are issued by Austrian embassies or consulates.
The congress organisers and/or the EHS 2017 registration department will not directly contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants.

Letter of Invitation
On request, the EHS 2017 organising office will be pleased to send letters of invitation to individual scientists. They do not imply any commitment or responsibility on behalf of the Congress to provide financial support. Please note that letters of invitation can only be sent after receipt of registration and payment of full registration fee. During the online registration process you will have the possibility to request a visa invitation letter.
For this invitation letter your passport number, date of issue, and the issuing authority are needed.
The letter of invitation does not financially obligate the congress organizers in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the congress, the registration and the attendance are the sole responsibility of the delegate.
