APPLY EARLY! The congress secretariat offers an official letter of invitation for Meeting attendees. The letter of invitation, though not required for the visa application, can assist as a supporting document. Present this letter of invitation from Focus Valve to the consular officer during the visa interview. This letter by no means guarantees admittance into Austria, but can provide compelling evidence for immigration officials to consider.
Due to the recent COVID19 pandemic we want to assure you that the safety and security of all participants and staff are of utmost importance to us.
At this point Focus Valve from Sept 13 – 16, 2020 is not postponed - our registration is open.
As the situation is changing daily please note that we have adapted our terms and conditions for participants in order to provide easy cancellation at any time, should this be necessary.
We will keep you posted, thank you for your understanding.
