Visa Requirements

We kindly like to thank you for your interest in our EUROCORR 2018 conference. The organizers of the EUROCORR 2018 will support on your way to fulfill all the necessary formalities to obtain a visa to enter Poland. In order to speed this up, we kindly ask you to carefully read the information below.

First of all if you are a citizen of one of the countries of European Community you obviously do not need a visa. This also applies if you already have a Schengen Visa and that it will be valid when the conference shall be held.

Secondly if you are not one of the above mentioned cases, it may actually be the case that you do not need a visa. Poland has in the past signed a number of agreements that regulate this issue. Before you engage yourself in the formalities you can find the list of the countries on the website of the relevant Polish authority, or you can contact the Polish diplomatic or consular post in your vicinity.

If you are sure that you require a visa, we need you to do the following:
 ​​​​​

  1. Register for our conference at the conference website.
  2. Pay the amount required for the participation in the conference. 
  3. Fill in all fields in the Visa Application Form, otherwise your application may be rejected

What happens when all above are done by you, it is that the organizers shall issue a formal invitation form and register it with the Polish governmental body called “Urząd ds cudzoziemców”. We shall inform you by mail once this is done so you can apply at your local Polish mission or its representative.

We like to inform you that the decision to issue a visa is made entirely by the Polish authorities. This can take between 3 to 6 weeks.

Please note:
The Visa Application Form is available only for logged in users in the right top corner of the website.
