    Getting a Visa 

    After identifying that a visa is needed, foreign travelers should contact the U.S. Embassy Consulate at http://www.usembassy.gov.

The State Department’s recommended first source of up-to-date visa information is http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html.

    ISA recommends following these guidelines for getting a visa for entry into the United States:

    • Request a letter of invitation to attend ISA Sign Expo 2017 at least four (4) months prior to ISA Sign Expo. You must finish the registration process and payment in order to receive the visa invitation letter from ISA.
    • Applicants should present their entire trip itinerary, including travel to any countries other than the United States, at the time of visa application.
    • Provide evidence that you intend to return to your country of residence; applicants should provide proof of “binding,” or sufficient, ties to their home country or permanent residence abroad. This may include documentation of the following: family ties in home country or country of legal permanent residence, property ownership, bank accounts, and/or an employment contractor statement from an employer stating that the position will continue after the dates of the meeting.
