####> Visa letter version 3

Hello everybody,
A new visa email! 😀

##> Fixes:
– The letter is not with official Agora Enschede letter background (the same as the physical letter will be printed on!)
– Signatures are added!
– In some cases, we have updated the dates
– Removed a trailing ‘(‘

##> Payment
We have looked further in the payment situation and have been working on enabling a new payment option: credit card. This payment option should be available hopefully by tomorrow (we are currently waiting for the payment gateway to process our request). Please check if this is possible for you and if possible pay the fee using this method, even if you have previously sent us your participation proof (ie flight tickets). It is easier for us to manage if as much as possible goes through our webshop.

If paying with a credit card is still not an option for you, the following agreement still holds:
If you can provide us with proof of participation (flight tickets would be best for this) you can pay the fee on arrival (€55,-). Thus to confirm your participation please send your proof to visa@agoraenschede.org.

##> Check your letter
This counts for everyone, but especially for the people that have not yet received a visa email earlier, please check the following:

Attached to this email is a personal invitation letter in .pdf for the Agora, it is very important to check this carefully. You should read it to be aware of its content and especially check if your information in the letter is correct. The letter is made using the data from zeus (from your application) and using a technique called mail merging to place your personal information in a template letter.
Please take special care in checking the following:
#> The start and end date of the visa (this is when you first enter and leave a schengen country)
#> The embassy to which the letter is directed
#> Please check if the address is correctly split over lines (this was very hard for us since we cannot read the address 🙂 )
#> Your personal information, every field should be identical to what is on your passport.

##> Visa mail log
Finally, especially for the newly included people, you can find a mail log of all the emails send on our website: https://agoraenschede.org/participants/information-mails/visa-mails/
Please read the earlier emails as well, if you have not yet done so.

##> Physical letter
We will soon send you the physical letter, we will be assuming that all letters are checked and correct at that point (you will receive a final email giving you one last chance to check before that). However, if having a digital version of our invitation letter is enough for you please inform us of this (If you did so already I would kindly like to ask you to do so again).


##> Questions?
If you have questions please have a look at the FAQ section first, if that does not answer your questions send an email to visa@agoraenschede.org
See you soon!
