SSR 2014 Passport/Visa Information

SSR provides this information as a courtesy to meeting attendees. It is the responsibility of attendees, before entering the United States, to ensure they have the necessary documents, including those for entry into another country or re-entry into their own country.

International Visitors

All international visitors are required to have a valid passport, and some visitors may need a tourist visa. Please consult the embassy or consulate in your own country well in advance of travel to ensure that the appropriate documentation is obtained. We encourage foreign scientists planning to attend the SSR Annual Meeting to apply for a visa as early as possible and pay careful attention to U.S. State Department guidance in this matter.

The web site of the The National Academies' International Visitors Office (IVO) contains very useful information for scientists traveling to the U.S.

Letters of Invitation

If a visa is required for you to visit the United States, then you will also need to carry a letter of invitation. To request a letter of invitation, please contact the SSR Business Office and include your full mailing address.
