If you will require a visa to enter the United States to attend CORROSION 2014, you should 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. Visa wait times are available at http://travel.state.gov/visa. 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 2014. The letters will be mailed in October. 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 C2014visas@nace.org.
