Q: Can you help me obtain a travel visa?

A: Please check with the U.S. Department of State for the specific requirements for your country. We strongly suggest that you begin the process as soon as possible to avoid delays. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to obtain a travel Visa.

Upon request, conference organizers will provide a letter confirming your conference registration and participation details. In order to receive this letter, you must be registered and paid in full for the conference, and make your request no later than March 15, 2022. Due to the length of time it takes to complete the travel Visa application process, as estimated by the U.S. Department of State, letters will not be available from conference organizers after March 15, 2022.
