Some APSCE2017 participants may require a visa to enter and stay in the People’s Republic of China. The simplest way is to apply for a tourist visa, which should give the holders enough time to attend the conference and participate in pre/post conference activities. Invitation letters are not required for tourist visas. Please contact the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in your region for specific instructions. The time to process such an application may vary, depending on where the application is made. We advise APSEC2017 participants to apply as soon as possible if such visas are needed.
If an APSEC2017 participant has any problem in obtaining a tourist visa to attend the conference, please contact the Registration Chairs for invitation letter. Obtaining the letter can be time-consuming. In addition, please be reminded that the letter can only be issued to registered participants. Since Nov. 13 UTC, we are no longer able to provide invitation letters from duly authorized unit. Invitation letters from organizing committee will still be available upon request.
