Belgium is a member of the European Union, meaning, EU and Swiss nationals do not need to request an additional visa to enter Belgium.

Some participants who are nationals of non-EU countries will require a visa in order to travel to Belgium. To check whether you need a visa, please visit the website of the Belgian Consulate or Embassy in your country. Applying for a visa can take some time – it is therefore very important for you to start your application as soon as possible.

After registering for IGSS2018, InciSioN will assist with a visa invitation letter in support of a visa application.

Please do note:

Visa invitation letters will only be issued for the period of the event and for entry into Belgium;

No visa invitation letter requests will be processed after April, 20th 2018;

Applying for a Belgian visa and visa issuance is beyond our control. We are not liable for any additional visa costs, processing and/or issuance. We will do everything possible to help you with your visa application, but we cannot offer a refund if your trip gets cancelled because of visa-related problems.
