Do you need a letter confirming your meeting registration/participation to help with your efforts to obtain a visa to attend the ICAR Conference? If so, we are happy to provide a confirmation letter. Please note that you must be a paid registrant to receive a letter from ISAR and/or have submitted an abstract. This confirmation letter does not guarantee that you will receive a visa.
NEW THIS YEAR - During the abstract submission process, you may request a visa letter. If you have selected that you require a visa letter, ISAR will review your submission and send a visa letter within 5 business days as appropriate. Specific details about presentation dates, times and other details will be sent in early January 2020.
We encourage our foreign participants to apply for their visas as early as possible. Applicants should first consult the U.S. Department of State's visa appointment and processing wait times website. Review your visa status now to determine if you need a U.S. visa or visa renewal and to find out how to schedule an interview appointment.
