The Visa Process

Visa letters can be obtained after attendees have registered online and paid in full. Attendees may request a visa letter when completing their registration. Visa letters are not available to attendees who are not paid in full or who have canceled their registration.

DO YOU NEED A VISA?

Effective January 20, 2010, citizens of Visa Waiver countries may be unable to enter the United States without Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval from the U.S. Government. For more information about how to apply for ESTA authorization, visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.

For non-U.S. travelers who need a visa to enter the United States, it is important that you begin the visa application process as soon as possible. The application and interview process varies from country to country, and can take up to 90 days to complete. If you already completed your registration and did not request a visa letter but need one, please email your request to meetings@bioascend.com.

WHEN DOES YOUR U.S. VISA EXPIRE?

If the traveler already has a U.S. visa appropriate for this travel, check the expiration date on the visa to make sure it will not expire before the planned travel date.

WHEN DOES YOUR PASSPORT EXPIRE?

In many cases, a visa will not be issued if the traveler’s passport will expire prior to six months after the traveler’s planned entry into the United States.

WHEN SHOULD YOU APPLY FOR A U.S. NONIMMIGRANT VISA?

Non-U.S. citizens should apply for a U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa within 90 days before the anticipated travel date. Visa processing times vary from country to country and can change depending on the time of year—average visa wait times can be found on the U.S. State Department website.

HOW SHOULD YOU APPLY FOR A U.S. NONIMMIGRANT VISA?

Visit the website of the local U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your country to find out the process for applying for a U.S. visa, and how long it will take. Visa applicants will need to schedule an interview appointment as a first step in the visa process.

Additional planning time beyond the guidelines above is needed for visa applicants applying at some embassies because of to the time required to schedule an interview appointment. Additionally, the wait times for a Nonimmigrant Visa do not include time for required security clearances or administrative processing, which may extend beyond the general timeframe guidelines.

For more information about obtaining a visa, please visit the U.S. State Department website.
