What is Schengen?

Schengen refers to the EU passport-free zone that covers most of the European countries. It’s the largest free travel area in the world.

What is a Schengen Visa?

A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a person to travel to any members of the Schengen Area, per stays up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.

The Schengen visa is the most common visa for Europe. It enables its holder to enter, freely travel within, and leave the Schengen zone from any of the Schengen member countries. There are no border controls within the Schengen Zone.

 Invitation Letter

  • Please note that ICRoM Conference is not authorized to assist with the VISA process. The invitation letter from the organizing committees will be sent upon the request only when you register successfully, which may help but cannot guarantee you a visa. 

  • Your name must be listed exactly as it appears on your passport. Any differences between the name on your passport and the name on your invitation letter or other documentation could lead to a delay and/or denial of your visa.

  • It takes time for the Embassy to process the VISA application, please register as early as you can to make sure you have enough time.
