Visa Application

Attendees from other countries are required to obtain a visa to enter the People's Republic of China
  • Attendees can apply for a Chinese visa through a travel agency or directly at the nearest Chinese embassy;
  • If attendees apply for a tourist visa, which will be the best visa type to obtain as long the registrant does not have plans for conducting extensive business other than attending the conference and sightseeing, an official visa invitation letter will not be needed from MICCAI 2010. No visa is required for ordinary passport holders from Singapore, Brunei and Japan to visit China for up to 15 days for business, sightseeing, visiting relatives and friends or transit;
  • Once you have paid for the MICCAI 2010 conference registration, we will issue an official invitation letter for the visa application;
  • The invitation letter will state the conference name, the duration of the conference, your detailed correspondence that will be extracted from your enquiry;
  • Please contact for further information. Please note that due to the large expected number of enquires, we can only reply to visa application queries AFTER you have registered for MICCAI. General visa information should be obtained from your local China Consulate.
