Should your application be denied, AAPG can neither intervene in the process nor change the decision of the governmental agency. All expenses connected with obtaining proper documentation are your responsibility. Prior to registering, you may request a letter from AAPG at www.aapg.org/singapore2012/. The letter includes conference information and may be helpful
in your visa application.
