Visa Information for International Attendees

If you plan to attend the 2017 International Electric Propulsion Conference held in the United States and you require a visa for travel, you must apply for a visa with the U.S. embassy (consular division) or a U.S. consulate with ample time for processing. Advance travel planning and early visa application are important. We strongly suggest that you submit your formal application to U.S. authorities a minimum of 120 days in advance of the date of anticipated travel. 

Please visit for more information about the visa application process and U.S. Department of State requirements for travel to the United States.
