Visa to travel to UK (for non-EEA nationals)

Please click here for further details on how to apply for the Standard Visitor Visa (Business Visitor) which allows you to travel to UK for events such as this conference.

Upon request, the conference organiser will issue (by email and post) a standard invitation letter (to registered delegates only) on headed paper bearing the logo of the University of Glasgow and CREATe, to support a UK visa application. Please note delegates will need to carry the invitation letter in their hand luggage when they travel even if they have been awarded a visa before coming to the UK Border (in case a UK Border Officer asks for evidence of the reason to travel to the UK – this happens occasionally).

The conference organisers do not have any influence on whether a travel visa is granted or not. Delegates should make their own inquiries. If your UK visa is refused, the conference organiser will only be liable to refund the conference fee (documentary evidence will be required).

Cut-off Date

In the unlikely event that we do not have enough participants to run this event by May 15, 2017, the event will be cancelled and any fees paid to us fully refunded. Please note we are not responsible for any other charges incurred due to cancellation of this event.
