ICRM-LLRMT2016: International Visitors

U.S. visa procedures have been changing. If you are traveling to LLRMT from outside the United States and need a visa, we encourage you to visit the U.S. Customs and Border Patrolwebsite and the U.S. visa policy web page for updates on visa procedures and applications. Please allow ample time for visa processing.

Visa Waiver Program

International travelers who are seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program are now subject to enhanced security requirements. All eligible travelers who wish to travel under the Visa Waiver Program must apply for authorization using the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ETSA).

Find out if your country is part of the Visa Waiver Program. On the ETSA web page, scroll down to the bottom and click either the 'apply' or 'retrieve application' button.

If your country participates in the Visa Waiver Program, you must enter your name into the ESTA database.  Failing to do this may result in officials at your airport of departure preventing you from boarding your flight.

For more information on traveling to the United States please go to the International Visitors Office (IVO). The IVO is a resource on visa-related issues for the National Academies, Academy members, and the scientific community.
