International Attendees

If you are an international visitor that requires a visa to attend the conference, it is very important to start the process of applying for the visa early. Approval for visa may take more than four months for some nations.

For details on international travel to the U.S., visit the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs.

Request a letter of invitation

Business Visitor Visa

Visa applications and requests for information regarding visa requirements should be lodged with your local American Embassy or Consulate. An interview at the embassy consular section is the first step in the visa application process, at which point a quick fingerprint scan is also taken. Each visa applicant must also submit these required forms and documentation regarding personal information and travel plans. Because the waiting times for scheduling an interview and completing the application process are variable, it is recommended that you submit your visa application several months prior to your anticipated arrival. You may consult visa wait times for information on interview appointments and typical processing times.

Visa Waiver Program

If you are a citizen of one of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries, you may be eligible to enter the U.S. without obtaining a visa. For more information on entering the U.S. through the Visa Waiver Program, click here.

Supporting Documentation

As a part of the formal application process for a visitor visa, U.S. consular officials require additional documentation to substantiate the stated purpose of the trip. Prior to commencing the visa application process, prospective international attendees to the AMOS Conference should request an official letter of invitation to the event. This letter should be submitted by the attendee to a local U.S. Embassy or Consulate as a supporting document outlining the reason for travel into the United States.

Please note that the issuance of a letter of invitation from the AMOS Conference does not guarantee you will be granted a visa approval, nor does it commit the AMOS Conference to assist in obtaining your visa. It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to collect any and all documentation and fees required for entry into the U.S. The invitation letter cannot and will not be sent directly to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate for you. The AMOS Conference cannot and will not directly contact the U.S. Department of State, U.S. embassies, or consular offices on behalf of any prospective conference attendee.
