International Travelers: Apply For Your Visa Early

The United States (U.S.) requires the citizens of many foreign countries to obtain visas to enter the country. Citizens of countries not covered by the Visa Waiver Program must obtain a visa through their local U.S. embassies. You are advised to allow up to four months to obtain a visa for entry into the United States. For detailed information on the U.S. visa policy, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.

Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of 38 participating countries to travel to the U.S. for tourism or business (visitor [B] visa purposes only) for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa. All qualified VWP travelers are required to obtain electronic travel authorization prior to boarding an air or sea carrier to the U.S. Applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel, but no less than 72 hours prior to departure. Authorization is obtained through an online registration system known as the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

Obtain a "Letter of Invitation"

The World Perfumery Congress cannot assist you with the interview process, nor can anyone representing the WPC call the embassy or consulate on your behalf to provide support for granting a visa.

If you are denied a visitor visa, you may reapply if there is new evidence to overcome the basis for the refusal. In the absence of new evidence, consular officers are not required to re-examine such cases.

To obtain a letter of Invitation from the World Perfumery Congress, please e-mail Marissa Esposito after you have received a registration confirmation.
