Visa information

If you’re coming to the CRS conference from outside the UK, you might need a visa. Check if this applies to you at www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa.

Once you have been accepted to present on the conference programme, and you have registered and paid to attend, we can provide you with a letter to confirm this. You will make your request for a visa letter as part of the registration process. We aren’t legally allowed to provide general letters of invite to the conference.

If you are applying for a standard visitor visa (please do not assume this is the correct visa for you – use the link at the top of this section to find out), current government guidance states that the earliest you can apply is three months before travel. Therefore, you will need to register and pay for the conference before obtaining your visa. We will issue a refund to any delegate who is turned down for a visa. Please send proof to crsconf@gmail.com.

Requests for visa letters made after the 17 May 2024 deadline unfortunately cannot be accepted.

Please also ensure you follow the visa application instructions very closely.
