It is anticipated that some EASE 2016 participants may require a visa. Because Ireland is not one of the Schengen Visa countries, this may even apply if you are already in Europe. To determine if you will require a visa to visit Ireland please see the website of the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service:
If you do require a visa, then we will do everything possible to help you, but it is wise to start the application process as early as possible, up to three months before the conference start date, as the lead time is about 8 weeks.
Where appropriate, we will provide you with the required letter:
- confirming your registration at the conference/event and that registration fees, where relevant, have been paid,
- stating who will cover your costs for the conference/event,
- stating how you will be supported for the duration of stay inclusive of travel, accommodation and living expenses etc.
Please let us have this information in a timely fashion and aim to submit your application at least 8 weeks before your planned travel date. Otherwise the visa may arrive too late for the conference or for your travel arrangements to be booked or confirmed.
If you have any questions, or to request a Visa support letter, please contact Norah Power (first dot last at ul dot ie) with the words “EASE Visa Support” in the email subject line.
