Obtaining a Letter of Confirmation May Facilitate Your Visa Application

Do you need a letter confirming your meeting registration to help with your efforts to obtain a visa to attend an IAS Meeting? If so, we can provide a confirmation letter for you for the following meetings so long as you have already registered, paid for the meeting, and submitted your request by the deadline. We are unable to respond to requests submitted after the deadline or to requests for meetings other than the meetings listed here. Please note that this confirmation letter does not guarantee that you will receive a visa.

The content of confirmation letters is very strictly controlled. We regret that we are unable to provide letters for companions and spouses who are accompanying potential delegates, or customize a letter beyond what is included in the questions below.

Confirmation letters are each handled individually. All submitted information is verified prior to the letter being produced; it is not an automatic process and it will take approximately 7-10 business days (two calendar weeks) to process and e-mail or fax your requested letter. If your letter is being sent by traditional mail, it may take several additional weeks to reach its destination depending on the location (all letters sent outside of North America are sent via air mail). Be sure to find out how long the embassy requires to process your visa application so that you allow sufficient time for processing and mailing of both the letter and the visa. Please wait at least two weeks before inquiring as to the status of your confirmation letter. Inquiries may be sent to
