You are required to pay registration fees* before receiving an official letter of “invitation”. All Symposium fees must be paid in advance; otherwise, your registration cannot be accepted. Payment is accepted by online credit/debit card only. Once you have paid your registration fee, you may send an email to the Symposium Registrar and provide all pertinent information such as to whom the letter should be addressed and your contact details. If you provide an email address, an email version of the invitation will be sent to you electronically. If you require the original with official signature, it can be mailed to you via U.S. Postal System only. International mail is slow so this may take some time. Kindly note: the event organizers will not be able to contact or intervene with Embassy or Consulate offices on your behalf.
