Q: Will the IDYF staff help the participants acquire a visa?
A: Yes. If you require any documents (e.g. invitation letter), please inform us so that we could provide you with them. It is your responsibility to get a visa on time. As the visa process could take a long time, we strongly recommend that you start preparing as soon as possible when selected as participants. *Visa expenses are not included in the participation fee.
