AOP does not process visas for its participants. However to help with this process, we can send you an Invitation Letter that will bear the stamp of the AOP Head Office which you can use to obtain your visa. Information on the visa process can be found on our congress website, on the ‘Plan Your Trip’ page of each congress.
What is the procedure?
Register for the congress at least six weeks in advance (the delay for obtaining a visa varies according to the country). Once your registration has been paid your invoice will be automatically sent to your email, take note of its number. Fill in the request form on the ‘Plan Your Trip’ page not forgetting to include your invoice number in the appropriate field. To complete the request you will need a copy of your passport. Your Invitation Letter will be sent to you by email within two working days.
Kindly note that for a reimbursement, you must send us the formal written answer from the Embassy or Consulate by email. Once we have received the document, we will refund you the total amount paid, minus a 30 Euro administrative fee that will be applied.
The official language is English, however we offer simultaneous translations from English to French.
Please refer to the 'program page' of the congress to learn more about the available translated sessions.
Each badge is nominative, this is why each attendee should retrieve his/her badge him/herself at the dedicated welcome desk onsite:
by presenting the following:
Refer to chapter "Key moments" under "Plan your trip" tab on our website to learn more about Registration Desk opening hours.
Once you purchase your badge under your name, it is not transferable to another individual. However, if you could not attend due to sickness or emergency, we could consider converting it into credit to be redeemed within the coming year, upon a sufficiant proof.
This will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
We understand that you might only be interested in accesing only the exhibitor area. However, we do not offer any exhibition-only pass as AOP is strictly a medical conference and we value the importance of academic education. Therefore all badges include the relevant academic content as well as access to the exhibition area.
All of the badge types give access to the full duration of the congress and we do not count with one or two-day only passes. As the courses are carefully curated by our scientific committee, we hope you could fully maximize the learning opportunity.
AOP confirmation letter is available at all times for download on your AOP account.
The confirmation letter will also be sent out to each participant directly to their email within the week prior to the congress. It is crucial that you provide us the correct contact information when you register on the registration platform during sign up for this purpose.
All medical students and residents are eligible to obtain a preferred rate on their congress badge.
In order to benefit from this, during your registration, you will need to submit supporting documents such as a student card or written certificate from the Chief of Service of your university department, stating your medical specialisation as well your ID / passport showing your year of birth.
Nota: This preferential rate has been specially designed to facilitate access to the congress of students and interns from around the world.
Our bank account accepts EUROS and USD.
Should you have selected US Dollars on the website, the amount will subsequently be translated into EUROS at the prevailing exchange rate, which is why you may find a difference between the price shown on the invoice / your bank account and the actual amount deducted as payment.
Additional bank fees may apply for this conversion so we advise you to check with your bank first.
