Information for International Travelers

Entry into the UK

Citizens from most countries do not need a visa, but will be required to show a valid passport for a stay in the UK of six months or less.

Citizens from some countries may need to apply for a visa; this should be done as soon as possible to avoid delays. Should you need an invitation letter to support your visa application, you either must be the presenting author of an accepted abstract or must be registered and paid in full for the conference. Please email ISPD Headquarters to request a letter of invitation once you have registered or received your abstract acceptance notification. Should your visa application not be accepted, we will be happy to refund your registration fee.
