Visa Preparation

To travel to the USA, international attendees will need a valid passport, and some travelers will need a visa. Please look at the US Government’s official website for all information about if you need a visa, what type of visa you need, and how to obtain it, according to your specific circumstances.

If you need a formal letter of invitation for your visa application, please fill out the Visa Request Form.

The US Government encourages attendees to check processing times to find out how long it takes us to process most applications. Each application is different and takes a different amount of time to process. If you’ve already applied, learn how to check your application status. Attendees are encouraged to apply at least 12 weeks in advance of their departure date to ensure they receive the visa in time for the start of the event.
