Please note that Continuum Forums will not be able to arrange visas for participants. It is the delegate's responsibility to investigate the visa requirements for the host country and to apply for a visa, if necessary. If you are likely to need a visa, we recommend that you make your application as soon as possible to avoid any delay in obtaining the visa as it takes some time for processing. To help you, Continuum Forums will help you in the visa process by issuing a letter which confirms that you have registered to participate in the conference once you have made the payment to attend the conference. Please complete the visa information form for us to issue the letter.
Delegates who require an entry visa for Schengen Area must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Delegates should contact the nearest embassy, consulate or representing consular Schengen office to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications.
Participants attending conferences hosted in the Schengen Area are required to have a valid visa either upon arrival or in transit. This depends on your nationality. Visas must be applied for from the relevant embassy, consulate or representing consular Schengen office in the delegate’s country of residence. The nationality of the participants and delegates will determine whether or not they are required to apply for a visa. Participants are requested to visit the official website https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/ for more information.
It takes around one month for the Embassy to process the visa application. Please register as early as possible to make sure you have enough time for the visa.
