The Congress is sorry you were unable to get your visa. However, we do not contact the Embassy or Consulate on behalf of attendees and we are not in a position to influence Embassy/Consulate procedures or decisions. In case of visa rejection, the Congress cannot be held responsible and therefore cannot refund any registration fees.
