Visa and Invitation Letter

Important information regarding invitation letters (please read):

If you require a visa to enter the United Kingdom, the invitation letter will be issued after the successful registration.

Invitation letters shall only be issued to those delegates who have completed their registration process and paid their fees in full. Please note that it is the delegates’ responsibility to assert their visa status, and ensure that they apply sufficiently early.

Please note that a letter of invitation should not be considered as an official invitation covering fees and other expenses. Letter of invitation can ONLY be issued to delegates attending the Course; not accompanying persons.

To provide you with a visa support letter we will need your full name as it appears on your passport, your postal address and your passport number. Your name must be listed exactly as it appears on your passport. Any differences between the name on your passport and the name on your invitation letter or other documentation could lead to a delay and/or denial of your visa.

Please note London School of Ultrasound and the organizing venue of the course are not authorized to assist with the VISA process beyond providing the Notification of Invitation Letter issued by LSUS. Should your application be denied, LSUS cannot change the decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, nor will LSUS engage in discussion or correspondence with the MOFA or the Embassy on behalf of the applicant. Please note that we cannot enter into correspondence with the UK Authorities on your behalf and any invitation letter does not imply any financial liability on our part. The registration fee cannot be refunded when the VISA application of individual being denied.

It takes time for the Embassy to process the VISA application, please register as early as you can to make sure you have enough time. Check with your local embassy what sorts of documents are necessary in your specific case, as this may differ between delegates from a same country.

Apply for the visa early on to ensure its approval before the course begins. Check the guide processing times to find out how long getting a visa might take in the country you’re applying from.
