Participants are requested to check with the Italian Consulate or diplomatic mission in their home country for visa requirements. It is responsibility of the delegate to obtain a visa if required. Please check with your travel agent. The visa application process can take up to 2 months; so it is important that you start your application as soon as possible to ensure you receive your visa in time to travel to HIC 2018.
