Turkey has a mixed visa policy, requiring visas from visitors from some countries while visitors from others are exempt from visa. Participants shall review their visa statuses and determine if they need to obtain a visa. You may visit the [Ministry of Foreign Affair](http://www.mfa.gov.tr/visa-information-for-foreigners.en.mfa)s web site in order to determine your visa requirements.
It is up to the participant to pay any related fees, find out how to schedule an interview appointment and other instructions for the application process.
Please note that Visa letters will be only issued to:
- Authors who have paid their registration fee in full;
- Committee members;
- Invited guests and speakers;
- Persons know to the committee members;
For details that apply specifically to your country please visit a website of the nearest Turkish Consulate or Embassy.
All requests for visa letters should be addressed to the Local Chair.
