Visa Information

General Visa Information:

The site Visiting Canada has a wealth of information about visitors. Prospective attendees should first check if they require a Visa to enter Canada. Please also check the FAQs for your potential questions. Once you have applied for a visa, you can review this page for the next step(s).

The Citizenship and Immigration Canada has been notified and its (visa) offices around the world are aware of the conference. In general, the visa application process should be straightforward, yet, each individual's experience might be different. Therefore, we advise you to apply for a visa as soon as possible. Make sure that you have a paper copy of the support letter along with other documents with you when you arrive Canada.

Letters from ACM:

International registrants should be particularly aware and careful about visa requirements, and should plan travel well in advance. All visa inquiries must be handled by ACM HQ. Please send your request for a letter in support of a visa application to and include your name, mailing address, and fax number, as well as the name of the conference you are attending. Authors of papers/demos/posters should also include the title. Please note that what you receive is a support letter. ACM does not issue formal "letters of invitation" to any of its conferences.
