Invitations & Visas
A valid passport is required for citizens of all countries entering Canada. Citizens of certain countries and territories may also require a visa. To find out if you need a visa and how to apply, visit this Canadian government site: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada.html. We advise you to contact the Canadian Embassy or High Commission in your country for complete and official instructions on the specific visa regulations and application procedures that apply to you.

Letters of invitation to apply for a visa
Once your submission has been accepted and you have registered, we can provide an official letter of invitation to support your visa application.
Whilst we will send a letter of invitation to support your visa application, it is your responsibility to apply for a visa to attend COCE 2019. Please note that The IECA will not be financially responsible if you are unable to obtain a visa.
If you want an official letter of invitation, you must send us your full name and address, nationality, passport number, the name of your presentation, and any other info you want to have included on the letter to coce2019 at theieca dot org. Please allow two-three weeks for the letter.
