Visa Letter Support

International travel to meetings in the U.S.

FCS&EE staff advises anyone who may need a visa to attend the meeting to apply early. Visa applicants should apply at least three (3) months in advance of the meeting. Security-related policies have greatly increased the processing time for visa applications. U.S. consular officers now usually interview applicants as part of the application process.

General information about visas:

The National Academies maintains a website about visa-related issues and travel information for U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens.
