Visa Request Process

Over the past several years the obtaining of a visa has become more complex requiring more attention, energy and time. Additionally, embassies have different requirements. Some may request:

  1. A letter from MobiHoc 2017 verifying intentions of conference participant
  2. Confirmation that the paper was accepted
  3. A receipt that conference fees have been paid in full
  4. Appearance or interview by conference participant
To request a visa letter please provide the following information:
  1. Conference/workshop title, date and location
  2. The amount of fees paid by the requestor
  3. Your intention as either a participant, presenter, committee member, speaker, panelist, etc
