Do I need to use your partner?

Italy requires a "Formal Business Invitation" signed by an Italian company and representative for visa applications. As the organisers of the event, while we conduct business meetings with attendees, we are not authorised to issue these formal invitations directly and so we have partnered with MiCo dmc to make the process as smooth as possible.

You are of course welcome to pursue the visa application process independently, utilising your own contacts or resources to obtain the necessary documentation.

Is there a cost involved?

Whilst there is a cost associated with the manual work and detailed document checks, we have negotiated with our partner to ensure competitive rates of EUR 100 per visa letter.

Please note:

The process of obtaining a visa is ultimately the responsibility of the attendee. Neither the organiser nor our partner can guarantee the approval of any visa application. CPHI has no control or involvement in third-party decisions such as issuing an invitation letter or any kind of visa process.
