FAQ's

Visa and Travel

Please note that CAMP is unable to support national/international travel for students. However the registration, accommodation and food is covered by the course for all participants. Please consult your university/PI or external sources for funding your travel. Here are some links: International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility, Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds , Company of Biologists , and http://ncbs.res.in/rdo/grants_for_junior_researchers .

A Conference Visa is required for attending CAMP. This visa is valid for a maximum period of one month..

If you plan to stay longer than 1 month, you will need to apply for a separate tourist visa.

Use the passport whose details you had initially provided us with. This is because we have sent those details to the Ministry of External Affairs which processes and clears you for entry on a conference visa.

Please apply to the same Indian consulate which you mentioned in the CAMP application form.
