visa advice

If you need a visa to attend Med-Tech Expo it is essential that you begin the application process as soon as possible, in order that you obtain your visa in time for the conference or registration deadline.

Visa application procedures for entering many countries, and in particular the UK, have become stricter and more complex following recent terrorist activities, and therefore it can take much longer to process your application than anticipated. You can find useful information HERE. You must submit your own application to the relevant authority and follow up accordingly. Med-Tech Innovation Expo is unable to follow up your application on your behalf or enter into direct correspondence with consulates.

A Visa Support Letter will ONLY be issued to SPEAKERS and EXHIBITORS who have been invited by Med-Tech Innovation Expo or who have paid their exhibition registration fee in full. Once we have confirmed receipt of payment from the proposed attendee we will need the full name, nationality, passport number, expiry date and date of birth for the attendee, only then can we issue a Visa Support Letter. The Visa Support Letter will confirm the event title, date and location. It will also confirm whether the individual is a speaker or exhibitor.

It will not imply any undertaking to provide funding nor act as financial guarantee for your stay in the UK.

Med-Tech Expo reserves the right not to issue a Visa Support Letter in certain cases even if above conditions have been met. Exhibition Fees will not be refunded in the case of a Visa not being obtained.
