Schengen - Visa

Should a visa be required in order to attend the EuroNanoForum 2017, it is the delegate’s responsibility to access the visa website in order to obtain the necessary application. This would need to be filed at the diplomatic mission of the main destination or country of first entry into the Schengen area, or its representation. The delegate must ensure that the application is lodged within the established deadlines in order to ensure timely review.

Should a visa be required, it should be clearly indicated in the registration form on the Accreditation Portal. Upon successful completion of the process, the EuroNanoForum 2017 will issue a supporting letter confirming participation.

The relevant documentation may be obtained from Malta’s Central Visa Unit (CVU) portal: https://identitymalta.com/visa-application.  For further information, kindly contact Malta’s Central Visa Unit (CVU) on +356 2204 2310/2421/2424 or mvisa.ima@gov.mt.
