The University of Stuttgart does not issue formal invitation letters for visas. We can, however, issue a visa support letter to registered attendees and authors with accepted papers/posters, presenters, or members of the conference committee.
If you would like to request a visa support letter, please use the form below. Please allow up to 10 business days to receive a letter. All requests are handled in the order they are received.
- Only accepted authors may request a visa support letter prior to registering for the conference.
- Authors may indicate their paper title. If there is no paper, speakers can provide the title of their presentation.
- We cannot include family members in the visa support letter. You will need to advise the embassy of your family’s travel plans.
