Visa Information for International Attendees
Most travelers to the United States must hold a valid visa and a passport valid for the intended travel. If you do need a visa, please understand that the visa application process may take several months. An interview appointment is required for a visa application at all embassies and consulates. The wait time for this appointment varies, therefore as soon as you decide to attend the meeting, you should begin the process of applying for a visa. Should you need an invitation letter, please understand that you either must be the presenting author of an accepted abstract to the Annual Meeting or must be registered and paid in full. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a letter of invitation once you've registered or received your abstract acceptance notification. Should your visa application not be accepted, we will be happy to refund your registration fee.
You can get more information regarding visas to the United States and information regarding the wait time for your particular embassy or consulate at the travel.state.gov website.
Please Note: It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to obtain the necessary paperwork for entry to the US. This letter does not guarantee that you will be granted a visa, nor does it commit ASA to assist you in obtaining a visa. ASA Conference will not pay any expenses incurred by you. We cannot send the letter to the embassy or consulate for you, nor can ASA contact the embassy or consulate on your behalf.
