If you scroll down that page, you will find what documents are required for your visa application (proof of accommodation, flight tickets, insurance, etc.)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”7/12″][vc_column_text]Officially the invitation letter must be issued by the inviting company registered in Italy, and the letter itself must be typed on an official form provided on the same website.

As you may know, the company organizing the conference is registered in Hungary, but for taxation purposes it also has an Italian VAT number.  In other EU countries where BP conferences took place in the past, an invitation letter issued by the conference organizer company has been sufficient — in all likelyhood it should be sufficient for Italy as well.

Just to be on the safe side, on top of the official invitation form we’ll issue another invitation letter as well, with additional details about the conference and an explanation of the inviting company’s status in Italy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Please provide your details in the form below.  The data will be stored on the conference website’s servers in Hungary, and the will be used solely for the purposes of issuing the letter of invitation.

Since the letter must be mailed in original, I will have to ask for the mailing expenses to be paid upon arrival in Bologna.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][gravityform id=”11″ title=”true” description=”false” ajax=”false”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
