Invitation Letter

If you require a formal visa invitation letter, then one from the host institutions and UArctic can issue upon request. To receive an invitation letter, please send an email to the UArctic International Secretariat containing the following information:

  • Full name (as shown on your passport)
  • Citizenship
  • Name of Institution or Organisation you represent

 

Click on the following link to send your request, or send a separate message with the heading “Council Meeting 2019 - Invitation Letter”.

Note: Invitation letters will only be sent to registered participants by e-mail as PDF attachments. The deadline for invitation letter requests is July 17, two months before the event, which allows enough time for visa procedures.
