Do I need visa to visit the United States?

Requirements and procedures to obtain US visas vary from country to country. We suggest that you check the US Dept. of State sites:
https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/general/visa-wizard
https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html.

It is generally recommended to apply for a B-1 or B-2 visa. If you need a visa, it is strongly recommended that you start the process well in advance and follow the guidelines of the US Embassy in your specific country.

How can I receive an official invitation letter to the conference?

An invitation letter confirming your acceptance to present or participate in the conference will be issued only upon request. We encourage you to check the U.S. Dept. of State site (https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html) and the U.S. Embassy where you will be applying for specific guidelines.

If you need an official invitation letter, contact the LOC at [email protected]. Please send:
• full name
