Web Science Doctoral Summer School 2011 - Visa Information

Everyone entering Ireland must have a valid passport, or in the case of European Union Member States, a national identity card. Visas are required for some countries and delegates should check with their local Irish embassy/consulate/visa office and visit the website of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs to see the most up to date list and here for additional information. It can take a number of weeks to process a visa application and early application is recommended. The Organising Committee or the Conference Secretariat will not accept any responsibility for visa applications. Where a delegate is unable to attend because of failure to obtain a visa on time, the normal cancellation policy for registration fee and accommodation will apply.

If you need to apply for a visa, please register for the summer school, pay your registration fee in full and then request a visa letter from the Summer School Secretariat by email to hilda.fitzpatrick@deri.org. Please note that we are unable to send such letters via DHL or other express mail services, due to high cost. We can send a scanned copy by email and a hard copy will be mailed via Irish Post. The Irish Embassy will only accept original letters from us so please allow enough time for us to post the visa letter to you.
