GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT VISAS FOR THE NETHERLANDS
Delegates wishing to remain in The Netherlands or other Schengen territories for a maximum of 90 days should apply for a short-stay Schengen visa, depending on the delegate’s nationality. Visa applications must be sent to the relevant Dutch embassy, consulate or representing consular Schengen office in the delegate’s country of residence.
The nationality of the participants and delegates will determine whether or not they are required to apply for a visa. More information is available on this website.
Please take careful note of the documents to submit when applying for a visa for business purposes. Visa requirements and application guidelines differ from country to country.
Delegates who require a visa must obtain and submit an official letter of invitation from the Conference Secretariat to facilitate the visa process. Please note that letters of invitation are only issued to registered and paid/approved delegates.
Individuals requiring an official letter of invitation from the conference organizers can request one on the online registration form or by contacting us at Visa@pmcongress2019.org.
Delegates attending several events in The Netherlands this year – such as AIDS2018 – are advised to apply for a multi-entry visa, also available free of charge. Please apply for multi-entry visas early – before 1 February 2019. Applications will require all necessary documentation for both events (letters of invitation, return airfare and medical insurance).
