Warning: There are an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate ECCMID. We would like to alert all our members and delegates to possible scams and we strongly advise you to use only the official ECCMID online registration for your bookings.

Visa Application

An invitation letter to be used for your visa application can be obtained after completing the Congress registration. You must apply for your visa as soon you are confident that you will attend ECCMID in Barcelona (in some countries, this process can take up to 3-4 months). In addition, ESCMID is working with the city of Barcelona to facilitate the visa application process.


Further information on the application process can be found here:

Declaration of the Venue


Important: during visa application please include your Congress registration receipt.

Otherwise the «Declaration of the Venue» is not valid.
