Coronavirus (COVID-19): Latest Information and Advice

We have set up a dedicated page for updates relating to coronavirus, its impact on IMC 2022 and helpful links. This page will be updated on a regular basis as we continue to monitor the situation.


Visas for Overseas Delegates

As of 30 January 2020, the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union.

We encourage all delegates who are concerned about obtaining a visa, or who are uncertain whether they will require one to attend the IMC as a result of Brexit, to check the official UK government website.

Once the programme is confirmed (usually in early December) we will be able to issue formal letters of invitation on request. Please email to request a letter, including any reference numbers or other information which your visa application may require.  

Please note: We ask that delegates wait until they have heard whether their session/paper proposal has been accepted into the programme and scheduled by the Programming Committee before contacting us to request a letter of invitation.

If you have any concerns, or have been experiencing difficulties obtaining a visa, please let us know by emailing While the IMC is not able to offer advice on individual cases, we are keen to find out more if individual delegates are experiencing difficulties.
