Travel Visas

If you require a visa to attend CORROSION 2012, then apply now! U.S. regulations now require security checks for most visitor visas, resulting in a process that may take three months or more. Citizens of certain countries must have an invitation in hand before they can obtain a passport from their government and then apply for a U.S. entry visa. General information on the U.S. visa application process is available through the National Academies’ International Visitors Office. Official information on U.S. visa policies and procedures is available from the U.S. Department of State.

Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews, so applicants should first contact the consulate to determine how long the wait is for an interview. Click here for available visa wait times.

Letter of Invitation

Persons who are giving presentations in the technical symposia are provided invitation letters, and all NACE members who reside in countries requiring visas will automatically be sent a letter of invitation to CORROSION 2012.

If you are not an author in a technical symposium or a member of NACE, you must first register for the conference, then send your request to Denise Hookstra.

Learn More About Utah!

Here are some quick facts that will get you acquainted with the "Best of the West".

Restaurants and Bars
From great American classics to dining options from every corner of the world, you will find exactly what your tastebuds are craving for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Eat hearty to keep up your energy - Salt Lake also boasts a vibrant nightlife with nightclubs, sports bars, piano bars, pubs and martini bars; which means there's plenty here to keep you up long after the sun goes down.

Liquor Laws
Misperceptions abound when it comes to Utah's liquor laws. It is as easy to get a drink in Salt Lake as it is to order a meal. Can you drink in Utah? Absolutely yes ... even on Sunday. Like other major cities, Salt Lake has bars, brewpubs, and restaurants that serve alcohol seven days a week. The "membership requirement" to enter bars was removed in 2009. If you're over 21 you can walk into a bar, order a drink, and enjoy.
