Visa Application

2021 The 2nd Communication Technologies and Cloud Computing Conference

* Please be kindly noted that the organizing committee is not authorized to assist with the VISA process beyond providing Conference Invitation Letter. The conference invitation letter cannot guarantee the approval of visa application. Should your application be denied, the conference organizing committee cannot change the decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, nor will the organizing committee engage in discussion or correspondence with the consulate or the visa center on behalf of the applicant. 

First you'll want to check if you need a visa to enter the UK.

  • Nationals of the EU, Switzerland, and EEA countries will not need a visa, and are free to work and conduct business in the UK.

  • Nationals from some designated countries such as USA may travel for tourist or business purposes under a visa exemption. The link above will detail what documents you need to provide in order to travel under a visa exemption.

  • Other nationals will need a visa.

Do I need a visa?

A standard vistor visa will be sufficient for the large majority of conference speakers and attendees. The official information for this is the site.

You can apply for a Standard Visitor visa if you want to visit the UK for business-related activities.

When to apply for visa?
The earliest you can apply is 3 months before you travel. We most strongly encourage you to apply not earlier, but also not later. You should get a decision on your visa within 3 weeks. The UK government publishes guide processing times for each country.
