VISA INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL ATTENDEES
For more than 50 years, the United States of America has required visas to be issued to those wishing to study, visit, or conduct business in the U.S. While changes have been made recently to U.S. visa law, many procedures remain the same. Most importantly, you must APPLY EARLY for a visa, as processing time has increased in some instances. For information about obtaining a visa, please visit the following website: http://www.unitedstatesvisas.gov. If you need a written invitation to assist you with your visa, please email the SAGES Registrar, [email protected], with your name, title, institution, and complete physical mailing address for each request.
