Visa Information

Check  with the US Department of State to determine if you require a visa in order to travel here.  Many countries have a visa waiver program with the U.S.A.  If your home country is not in a waiver program, or if you have had any previous redress, you must obtain a B visa for travel to the U.S.  Best is the B1/B2 visa which allows  for tourism as well as attending conferences.
IMPORTANT:  make arrangements early! There is currently a very large back-log and many delays in issuing visas.
