Visa requests for the 3rd ITU IPTV Interop Event in India
The procedure to get a visa involves two steps.
1st step: Request for the visa support letter

The request should include a copy of the passport and the following information:

The Indian host strongly recommends that you send the email as soon as possible, preferably
two months prior to the event, in order to allow enough time for visa processing by the Indian authorities.
