Visa Information

The 50th Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place in Hyderabad, India, from 30 October to 2 November.

All foreign nationals entering India will require a valid visa. You must apply for an Indian visa online before you travel. Delegates should request a conference visa, which allows both conference and tourism.

When applying for an online visa, participants will be required to upload three supporting letters:

  1. A conference invitation letter, which can be requested through the conference registration system
  2. A clearance letter from the Indian Ministry on Health (download this here)
  3. A clearance letter from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (download this here)

Participants from Afganistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Sudan will need to make a special conference visa application and get further clearance from the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs. If you need any support with this, please email registration@theunion.org.

Visa applicants must apply through India’s visa website. The Union advises all delegates needing visas to apply no later than 20 September 2019 – to allow for adequate processing time.
