Travel to United States

Most travelers to the United States must hold a valid visa and a passport that is valid for six months longer than the intended visit. Please visit our visa information pages to determine if you require a travel visa to attend the Annual Meeting.

There have been some important changes to the US-VISIT program. The program now requires most foreign visitors to have fingerprints made of all their fingers and a digital photograph taken to verify their identity at the consulates as well as the port-of-entry (Canadians should double-check their US-VISIT exempt status). A departure confirmation program is also now currently in place as part of US-VISIT. This program applies to all visitors, including those from visa-waiver countries.

Also new: Beginning in January 2010, visitors from countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program must register with the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before entering the country. Learn more...
