Conference participants may need a Chinese visa to enter China.
Specifically, those who are not Chinese citizens, except passport holders from
Singapore, Brunei, and Japan, need a Chinese visa. Participants can apply for a
visa at the Chinese embassy or consulate in the region in which they live. To
avoid uncertainty, participants will be advised to apply for a visa as early as
possible. It is recommended that they apply for a Chinese visa at least 1
month in advance.
For most attendees, it is easier to apply for a Tourist ("L") visa; an
invitation letter is NOT required for obtaining a Tourist visa.
If some participants need another type of visa that does require an invitation
letter, the ICCT 2022 local arrangement committee will be glad to help. To obtain
an invitation letter, please send e-mail to
email@example.com , together with
your registration, and in the case of being an author, your accepted paper ID.
The Conference Secretariat will then send a formal visa application form via
airmail or fax with which the participants can apply for a visa.
