Letter of Invitation for Visa Purposes

To obtain a letter of invitation issued by the Local Organizing Committee for the visa application process, please complete the WC2023 Visa Invitation Letter Request Form. The form is only available to participants who have completed their registration.

Once the Visa Invitation Letter Request Form is submitted, the Local Organizing Committee representative will issue an official invitation letter with a RENURE (Registro Unico de Requirentes Extranjeros) number and send it electronically to the consulate/embassy indicated in the form. This can take up to 7 business days. A copy of the letter will also be sent to the applicant electronically.

Visa invitation letter requests submitted up until 10 May 2023 are currently being prepared and will be sent to the consular office indicated in the form by 15 May 2023. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We thank you for your patience throughout this process.
