Request an Invitation Letter
You should avoid registering for the conference (Step #1) if you don’t have an approved visa. While it is advised that you should make your hotel reservation early, check your hotel’s cancellation policy in case you need to cancel your trip. But do register with the Space Settlement Contest Student Registration (Step #2).
The visa approval procedure usually happens in two steps: 1) biometrics and 2) interview. You can read about the entire process here.
Important Note: Participants should apply for their visas at the very latest by mid-April to ensure visa approval timing before June.
