Visa Assistance

Make your visa arrangements for entry into the United States early. Such arrangements are the responsibility of attendees and other participants, and may take up to a few months.

Nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries will still be eligible to travel without a visa, but will have to obtain an approved travel authorization prior to their travel to the United States. The actual approval form and additional information may be found at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/esta.html

Complete information on how to apply for a visa to enter the US can be found on the U.S. Department of State's website http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html

Authors can obtain visa letters through EDAS. When you log onto your personal home page & go to the paper you submitted, there will be a letter shaped icon (visa letter). Once you click on it, a PDF of the visa letter is generated. If you need further assistance regarding your visa letter, please contact Bridget Erlikh.
