Visa Applications

Please check with Federal Foreign Office and your local embassy embassy if you require a visa for traveling to Germany. If you need to apply for a visa, we can write you a letter of recommendation. For this, you must have either registered for the conference or have a paper accepted at FUSION 2016. Please send us an email containing least the following information

  • Full Name
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Passport Number
  • Paper ID (if applicable)
  • Address to send the document to
  • Embassy you are going to request the visa at (this is absolutely necessary for participants who do not live in China and/or request it in a different country).

If the embassy in your country requires us to include additional information (e.g. travel dates), simply tell us what else to include. Please note: We can only write a letter of recommendation and not a legally binding invitation letter. An official invitation would have legal implications that cannot be burdened by the conference committee.
