The confirmation letter does not guarantee you will receive a visa. Confirmation letters will only state the event title, dates, location, payment confirmation of registration fees, and that you are a presenter if applicable. If you are denied a visa, we will provide you a full refund as long as we are notified BEFORE 30 October 2013. Attendees are advised to apply for a visa as early as possible.
