VISA & Invitation Letter

Attendees from certain countries are required to obtain a US visa when attending ISPSD 2018. Some embassies may need to verify that registration fees have been paid in full and may require applicants to appear in person for an interview, causing delays in the application process. Applicants affected by these procedures are informed that additional screening is needed. Therefore, attendees should apply for a visa no later than three months prior to the conference. A summary on the US business visa, provided by ISPSD, can be found here. The visa application procedure is detailed on the official US departmental website at travel.state.gov.

After you complete your online registration, you will receive a confirmation email which will serve as your invitation letter for the visa application purpose, as per IEEE policy. In case of difficulty obtaining your visa, please see the ISPSD Cancellation and Refund Policy.
