It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of his/her visa requirements. Attendees should contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications. You can find additional information here.

The organizers will not directly contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants. The registration fee minus a handling fee of 80 USD will be refunded after the conference if the visa was applied for in time (minimum eight weeks before the conference), and official proof of the embassy confirming that a visa could not be granted, is forwarded to the ISPAD 2022 Registration Department.

Refund requests will be processed after the conference only. They must be made in writing and sent to the ISPAD 2022 Registration Department by email no later than 14 days after the conference (October 30, 2022). No refund requests will be processed after this date.
