Visa requirements 

Participants are advised to make their own arrangements with respect to entering Greece. Some nationalities will need to organise visas prior to travelling.


If you require a visa to visit Greece, please apply for it within a reasonable period of time (minimum three months ahead of the planned travel).


The Local Organising Committee recommends that all participants check the websites of the Greek embassy in their country prior to travel to ensure that they have all the necessary paperwork for travel.


Neither the Local Organising Committee nor EARIE can be held responsible for and cannot refund any registration fees for participants who fail to obtain their visas prior to travel.

Where can I get information? 

Click here for the website of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs where you can find information on visas to enter Greece. You can also search for the Greek Embassy or Consulate in your country and contact them.

Visa application support letters 

If you need a Visa Application Support Letter, the conference organisers can provide this letter once:

(a) you have registered for the conference and

(b) your registration fee has been received.


Once you meet these two requirements, please e-mail the conference organisers, with your full name, and the address of the concerning embassy (consulate) where you are going to apply for visa. Let us also know if you are a presenter as well. Your request will be processed as soon as possible, and the conference invitation letter (scan) for your visa application will be e-mailed to you.


Unfortunately, we cannot send out hard copies of Visa Application Support Letters by post, courier, or other mail services.
