As a major International event the 2019 IEEE NSS MIC Conference welcomes attendees from all over the world. The UK government has set out detailed plans confirming protection for flights in a no deal scenario. EU “no deal” aviation regulation is also about to be finalized to ensure UK airlines can continue to operate to Europe and contingency measures to provide industry and holidaymakers with the certainty they need and ensure flights will continue after Brexit. Please visit the UK government website for further information.
EU nationals will be able to continue to travel on ID cards until 2021. It is recommended that visitors who are citizens of current EU Member States and who have a valid passport use the e-gates to make entry quick and easy. Visitors who are citizens of current EU member states will continue to be able to travel without a visa. This will continue to be the case even if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. Please check the UK government website for further advice.
From June 2019, citizens of the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea will be permitted to use e-gates at UK airports and at Eurostar terminals. This will significantly reduce queues and improve the flow of passengers and the overall experience at the UK border.
Landing cards stopped being used in June 2019. This will reduce bureaucracy for travelers and speed up the processing of passengers on arrival in the UK
The UK Government announced two new deals, in November 2018, between the UK and Canada and the United States to ensure transatlantic flights will continue between North America and the UK following Brexit. Please check the UK government website for the latest advice.
If you require a visa to entry the UK to attend the 2019 IEEE NSS MIC, Conference you should apply for a Standard Visitor visa. General information on the Visa application process for a Standard Visitor Visa is listed here.
It is extremely important that you check with the closest UK Consulate or Embassy as soon as possible in order to determine the Visa requirements necessary for you to enter the United Kingdom.
Have a good trip and we look forward to seeing you in Manchester.
