Visa information

IATEFL is not able to provide any visa advice to our delegates. We recommend that you visit to find out if you require a visa and which one is most appropriate for you.

Delegates who require an invitation letter in order to make visa arrangements should first make a conference booking online. Under the Personal Information section, tick the ‘invitation letter required’ box and fill in your passport number where indicated. Please ensure you have filled in your full name, postal address, nationality, passport number, and your email address carefully in the correct fields.

Invitation letters will be sent out from January 2022. As they are sent out manually there may be a delay in receiving your letter during busy times. For bookings made from January 2022, please allow up to two weeks from the time of your booking for your letter to arrive by email.

Please note that invitation letters are only for overseas delegates who require an invitation to assist with their travel visa application. Delegates who require a letter for their place of work to secure time off or funding should instead download an Employer Justification Document.
