If you need to apply for a Nonimmigrant Visa and your Portuguese Consulate or Embassy office requires a letter of invitation, please contact AscenÃ§Ã£o Rebelo (firstname.lastname@example.org). All Letters of Invitation will be sent via e-mail and/or current mail to the participant or to the Consulate/Embassy, according to the request. Due to the lengthy Visa issuance process (sometimes longer than three months), you should request the Letter of Invitation as soon as you decide to attend the Meeting.
The Organizing Committee is unable to assist in any matters relating to visa issuance procedures other than to mail Letters of Invitation. If you have specific questions, please visit the websites listed below or contact your local Portuguese Consulate or Embassy.
