For Visitors in Need of a Visa

If you need a visa, you will need to apply for the right kind of visitor visa. Please check current visa categories and requirements with the U.K. Visas and Immigration Department.

Please contact your local consulate for the most accurate information, as the application process varies by location.

If your visa application is denied, please inform EMI in writing that you wish to cancel your registration and attach a copy of your visa denial.

A full refund will be issued if the cancellation notice is received by the deadline (March 23, 2020). No refunds will be made for cancellation requests received after March 23, 2020. Send cancellation requests to emi2020.ic@durham.ac.uk.

Please file your visa paperwork as far in advance as possible to be eligible for a refund.

ASCE cannot intervene on behalf of the invitees with the U.K Embassy or Consulate via fax, phone, surface mail, or email.
