It is imperative that authors and attendees allow sufficient time to obtain visas.
Citizens from many countries, including all EU/EEA countries, do not need a visa to visit France. You can check if you need a visa from your country. Visa processing times vary depending on the nationality of the applicant, the purpose of the stay and the local visa issuing conditions. It usually ranges from 15 days to 45 days, but it can sometimes take longer. An interview at a consulate may also be required. Please ensure that requests for invitation letters are sent early enough.
Conference attendees who require a visa will typically need an invitation letter from the General Chair. To expedite the process, please provide as many of the following pieces of information as possible in your request:
Unfortunately, IACR deals with some fraudulent requests for visa letters. In order to ensure we only write letters for legitimate purposes, we ask you to provide a justification. Being an author of an accepted paper suffices. If this does not apply, a short explanation of your background and why you want to attend Eurocrypt 2023 is required. We will follow up if necessary.
We hope that you will be able to attend Eurocrypt 2023 and help us make the conference a great success.
