Spain is a member-country of Schengen Area. A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a person to travel to any members of the Schengen Area, per stays up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes. It enables its holder to enter, freely travel within, and leave the Schengen zone from any of the Schengen member countries. There are no border controls within the Schengen Zone.

Visa regulations depend on your nationality and country of origin. We suggest you contact your local Spanish Embassy or Consulate for official instructions on the specific visa regulations and application procedures. It is the responsibility of the INS Congress 2021 participant to obtain a visa if required.

The processing period for visa issuance may vary between different visa applications. Visa applicants are therefore reminded to apply early for their visa, well in advance of the anticipated travel date.

All event activities (including educational sessions, exhibition hall, etc.) are exclusively reserved for registered attendees. Non-registered guests (including children, family members, colleagues, etc.) are not allowed in any of the event areas. Badges provided at registration are required for entrance into all functions and will be strictly enforced.

An official personalized letter of invitation will be provided to registered participants as part of the registration procedure. This invitation is prepared solely for the purpose of visa applications and is not a commitment on the part of the organizers to provide any financial support or confirmation of inclusion in the Scientific Program.

The INS 2022 Congress Secretariat, Organizers, and International Neuromodulation Society cannot accept liability for personal accidents or loss of/damage to private property of participants. Participants are advised to take out their own personal travel and health insurance for their trip.
