Visa Requirements for Entry into the USA

Participants requiring visas must initiate the application process many months in advance of their departure date. The US has updated its visa policies to increase security, so it may take you longer to apply for and receive your visa than it used to. For general information about U.S. visa policy and procedures, visit UnitedStatesVisas.gov or Travel.State.gov. For details that apply specifically to your country please go to your nearest US Consulate or Embassy. Review your visa status now to determine if you need a US visa or visa renewal. Contact your nearest US embassy or consulate to find out how to schedule an interview appointment, pay fees, and other vital instructions.

If you need a personal letter of invitation to attend the Congress, contact:
