Visa and Passport Requirements
Visa Waiver Program
Participants from countries covered in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) are allowed to attend the topical meeting under this program without obtaining any additional U.S. visa by registering online in the U.S. Homeland Security’s Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) system. This automated system will determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the U.S. under the VWP. If eligible, the participant is requested to inform us at Send e-mail.
It is the traveler’s responsibility to inquire if a transit visa will be needed for stopovers in other countries. Many countries/airports process transit visas at the airport itself; however, some transit visas must be issued in advance from the traveler's home country by the applicable consulate of that country. Since these rules and regulations are subject to change from time to time, it is recommended to check the requirements before travelling.
It is recommended that attendees make sure that accompaniying family members or guests have their papers in order before travelling to the U.S.
