There are many different
requirements to obtain a Visa to enter the U.S. or other countries.
Visa applications are currently subject to a greater degree of
scrutiny than in the past. Many applicants may be required to
appear in person for an interview as a part of the visa process.
Applicants affected by these procedures are informed of the need
for additional screening at the time they submit their application
and are being advised to expect delays. Therefore, attendees should
be advised to apply no later than 3 months prior to the conference.
Additional information can be found on the U.S.
