International Visitors

To help assist you with your travel planning to RAPID+TCT 2024, below are some helpful links to assist.  Please be aware that there is a significant backlog in obtaining United States Visa Interviews at most Embassies and Consulates.  You are encouraged to start your application process early and well in advance of your travel dates.

*To determine whether you will need a U.S. Travel visa, visit the U.S. State Department website.

*Check to see if you are from a country in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Each traveler must have a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to boarding a U.S. bound air or sea carrier.

Letters of Invitations:

Letters of invitation will not be issued. From the U.S. State Department website: “Visa applicants must qualify on the basis of the applicant's residence and ties abroad, rather than assurances from U.S. family and friends. A letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support is not needed to apply for a visitor visa. If you choose to bring a letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support to your interview, please remember it is not one of the factors used in determining whether to issue or deny the visa.

International Exhibitors and Visitors:

With your application, include any materials RAPID+TCT 2024 may have sent you to prove the tradeshow is a legitimate business event
