International Attendees

The United States has specific requirements for individuals entering the country from abroad. Please check the U.S. Department of State's website for current information regarding restrictions and COVID-19 testing and vaccinations.

The U.S. government requires residents of some countries to obtain a Visa before entering the United States. Changes to the Visa policy and procedures may increase the amount of time it takes to obtain a Visa.

The Visa Waiver Program enables citizens of certain countries to travel to the United States for 90 days or less without obtaining a Visa. Not all countries participate. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of State's website on the Visa Waiver Program

It is extremely important that you apply for your Visa early. Please note that the registration cancellation policy applies.
