Please note that, per Canadian regulations, participants must have completed registration for ISPN 2024 and paid the full registration fee before they can request an invitation letter for the Annual Meeting.

Participants who have completed registration and paid their registration fee in full will receive their attendee confirmation email, which will include a link to the Invitation Letter Request Form. Once the participants fill out their information on this form, the signed invitation letter will be sent to them separately.

Unfortunately, we are unable to send invitation letters directly to consulates. Invitation letters are prepared solely for individuals and are sent directly to them.

Please note that obtaining a Canadian visa may be a long process depending on the country of application, so we recommend completing your registration for ISPN 2024 and paying your full registration fee to obtain your invitation letter and begin the visa application process as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Annual Meeting Organizing Secretariat at peresici@kenes.com.


All visitors must have valid travel documents and identification to enter Canada, such as a passport or visa.

Find current information on entry requirements on the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) website.

Requirements may vary depending on the country you’re traveling from—or transiting through.

You may need a visitor visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). Find out if you need a visitor visa or ETA. The entry document you need depends on:

  • the type of travel document you plan to travel with
  • the country that issued your travel document
  • your nationality
  • your method of travel to Canada for this trip

Visa-exempt foreign nationals (excluding U.S. citizens) must apply online for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), ideally prior to booking their flight to Canada. Apply Here

Visa-required foreign nationals must submit fingerprints and a photo (biometrics) to acquire their visa for travel to Canada.

Covid-19 information:

Individuals are reminded that they should not travel if they have symptoms of COVID-19. If travelers become sick while travelling, and are still sick when they arrive in Canada, they should inform a flight attendant, or a border services officer upon arrival. They may then be referred to a quarantine officer who will decide whether the traveler needs further medical assessment as COVID-19 remains one of many communicable diseases listed in the Quarantine Act.

All travelers are being reminded to make informed decisions when travelling and are encouraged to review the travel and health notices at https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories.

Flights and Border Services:
