Visa Requirements

It is recommended to apply as early as possible for a Visa as the application process can be time consuming. Visa regulations depend on your nationality and country of origin.

Currently, EU citizens as well as visitors from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA do not need a visa to enter Spain. Regulations, however, are subject to change. It is therefore recommended that you check whether or not you require a visa. 

For information regarding visa requirements, please visit the Spanish Government Foreign Affairs website or visit your local Embassy (or Consulate) of Spain for more information.

Letter of Invitation for Visa Purposes

An official Letter of Invitation to obtain a Visa and authorization to attend the IASLC 20th World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC 2019) will be issued ONLY after registration has been completed and full payment received by the Conference Secretariat.

Submission of Applications

Processing times for visa applications vary depending on the visa office and the time of the year. Participants are encouraged to apply approximately 12 weeks in advance of their departure date to ensure they receive the visa in time.
