Citizens of some Countries need to ask for the VISA to enter in Italy. VISA can be obtained at the Italian Embassy or Consulate in the Country of residence.

Attenders can find here the Italian Embassy or Consulate nearest to their residence.

Authors and presenters that need a letter for applying for a VISA, should contact the conference organizers via email at to request such a letter. The request should report the title and authors of the CANS 2016 paper for which the VISA is needed or the conference registration confirmation.

VISA Offices may need several weeks to process your request. Please, apply for the VISA as earlier as possible so as to allow sufficient time for VISA processing and for getting possible assistance from the conference organizers directly with the VISA Office in the case of difficulties.

In some cases the Italian Embassy or Consulate needs also that the conference organizers faxes the invitation letter directly to the VISA Office. Please contact the VISA Office at the Italian Embassy or Consulate near your residence to verify which is the current procedure in your Country. Do not hesitate to contact the conference organizers for assistance with the VISA Office in case of any problem.

Do not ask for the invitation letter to the conference secretariat or to other organizers since only a letter by the conference organizers will be considered valid by the Italian Embassies and Consulates.
