Visa.pngEntry requirements

All participants who require a valid visa for admission to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland should make their application for visas in accordance with the information set out at https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration. Applications must be made as soon as possible (but maximum 3 months before departure). Please inform us through registration@wmo.int, if an individual invitation letter is required for your visa application.

Time needed to obtain a visa may vary from case to case. It is strongly recommended that delegates inform themselves on the relevant appointment system and procedures as early as possible, to ensure that the visa may be issued in a timely manner. Delegates can find this information on relevant national government websites.

In cases where no diplomatic relations exist between a Member and the UK, or where a Member considers that some difficulties may be experienced in obtaining visas, delegates can submit a visa request directly to the Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization, in accordance with Annex I of the General Regulations of the Organization, who will in turn submit it to the UK for advice or assistance.

Such requests must contain all the necessary details: name, surname, date and place of birth, father’s name, nationality, passport number, date and place of issue, expiry date, profession, place where the visa is to be issued, and duration of stay in UK. Requests should be received by the Secretary-General as far in advance of the meeting as possible.
