All travelers using a non-PRC passport must have a valid visa to enter China.

Upon request, the Conference will provide a Notification of Invitation Letter that you might be required to submit with your visitor visa application.

  • The invitation letter will be issued after you register successfully.
  • The name you provide during registration must be exactly as it appears on your passport. Any differences between the name on your passport and the name on your invitation letter or other documentation could lead to a delay and/or denial of your visa application.
  • Please note the Big Data and Analytics EdCon and the conference organizing committee are not authorized to assist with the visa process beyond providing a Notification of Invitation Letter.
  • Plan for the visa application process (from submission of application materials to a China government office until you receive your visa) to take at least one month. Please apply as early as possible.
