If you need a visa to attend the conference, we recommend that you begin the process as soon as possible, in order that you obtain your visa in time for the conference or registration deadline. Visa application procedures to enter the USA have become stricter, and therefore it can take much longer to process your application than anticipated.

Upon your request, we can provide you an official invitation letter to assist you with your visa application, please contact Conference Staff for obtaining the letter. The invitation letter simply invites you to the conference. We also recommend that when you submit your paperwork to the consulate, you make sure that you also submit a conference brochure. If you have submitted an abstract or organizing a mini-symposium at the conference you are advised to mention about those and submit copies of confirmation letters along with the VISA application.
