​​Visa Information

Attendees from Outside the United States

Recently, the United States has updated its visa policies to increase security for citizens and visitors, so the process of applying for your visa may have changed from the last time you applied or may take longer. Please visit the U.S. Visa website for official information.

If you need to apply for a temporary non-immigrant visa to attend Plant Health 2019, you are advised to apply for your visa as soon as possible and not later than 3–4 months in advance. All applicants must be able to qualify for a visa on their own merits. APS cannot intervene with embassies in other countries on behalf of any meeting participants.

Registration is now open ​​for Plant Health 2019​. We encourage that you register early. Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to download and print your invitation letter. You may submit this letter with your visa application to verify the name, dates, location, and purpose of Plant Health 2019. You may also take your registration confirmation paperwork to your visa interview. However, APS will not be able to provide additional visa support nor will APS call or generate personal invitation letters to the embassy or consulate.
