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

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.


Please note: many countries recommend vaccinations before travel to India. Check your country foreign office website for advice.
