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 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.
