SSR 2015 Passport/Visa Information

SSR provides this travel information as a courtesy to meeting attendees. It is the responsibility of each attendee to ensure that she/he has the necessary documents, including those for entry into another country or re-entry into his/her own country.

United States Visitors

No passports or immunizations are required for U.S. citizens or nationals traveling to Puerto Rico; however, traveling with a U.S. passport is strongly recommended. U.S. citizens 18 and over are required to show a U.S. federal- or state-issued photo ID. See TSA Requirements for the most up-to-date information.

International Visitors

All international visitors to Puerto Rico 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 to pay careful attention to U.S. State Department guidance in this matter.

The web site of 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 Puerto Rico, 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.
