Visa Support Letter for CIKM 2014

For those who need a visa to travel in China, we can issue an invitation letter or a visa support letter for your visa application. Visa application process varies at the Chinese embassies/consulates in different countries, and the requirements may even vary for your different personal situtations. Please consult with the Chines emabassy/consulate where you are going to apply for the visa, if possible.

1. Invitation letter

This is issued by the conference organization committee, which is an ordinary conference invitation letter. This is a quick and easy method, and the experiences indicate that this is good enough for most situations and most locations for applying for the visa.

If you have completed the registration, you may request this invitation letter by email (sent to cikm2014visa@fudan.edu.cn) including:

  • Your name
  • If you are an author of a paper accepted for the conference or a workshop, please provide the workshop name (if relevant), paper ID and the title
  • Your CIKM2014 registration number
  • Email address to receive the letter
  • Also: your birthday, gender, and passport number.

2. Official Visa support letter

This is issued by the Foreign Affair Office of Fudan University (the official sponsoring host institution of CIKM 2014), which is a formal official visa support letter. In case where the visa appication policy is rather restrictive at the Chinese embassy/consulate in your region/country, we suggest you choose this method. And please send your request email to cikm2014visa@fudan.edu.cn as early as possible, since we need more time to process this type of letter. If you think you need a copy of the official visa support letter, please include the following information in the email:

  • Your name (as it appears on your passport) and mailing address
  • A copy of the first page (that includes your photo and passport number ) of your passport
  • The location of the Chinese consulate to which you will submit your visa application
  • If you are an author of a paper accepted for the conference or a workshop, please provide the workshop name (if relevant), paper ID and the title
  • Your CIKM2014 registration number
  • Include email address of where we can send the support letter
