VISA APPLICATION / INVITATION LETTERThere are many different requirements to obtain a Visa to enter a country. Most embassies may request an 'Invitation Letter' from the Conference Organizing Committee to verify that the exact person is going to participate that specific conference (That is why, please DO NOT forget to write down your exact Passport number while filling out your PROFILE). It may also be necessary to verify that the requester has paid the registration fee in full. Therefore there are some requirements for providing an 'Invitation Letter' that to be used for visa application.
'Invitation letters'should only be issued to:
- Attendees who have made their complete Registration at the conference web site and paid their Registration fee in full;
- Committee members.
All question concerning your visa application status should be pointed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the respective Bulgarian Embassy in your country or/and to the Bulgarian Diplomatic Missions Abroad /more info here/
