Requesting Visa Assistance to Attend ITC

ITC will provide a letter in support of a visa to attend ITC in three cases:

  • You are the author of a paper accepted to ITC.
  • You have already registered as a program participant.
  • You are a registered exhibitor.

We have been advised it takes up to three months to obtain a visa. If the opening of official ITC registration will not give you enough time, we can make special arrangements to allow you to register early.

After you have registered, an invitation letter will be sent from the ITC office.

ITC will not provide letters to those not yet registered.

U.S. Department of State Visa Waiver Program (VWP)

If your country is a participant of the Visa Waiver Program, there is no need for an official letter of invitation. To verify your country’s participation, please check the State Departments website.  An additional resource is the US visa guide.
