Visa letters will be available through our registration partner CDS. If you are traveling from a country that requires a Visa, one will automatically be sent to once you’ve registered for the show.

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business (visa category B-1), tourism, pleasure or visiting (visa category B-2), or a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2).

There are several steps to apply for a visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you apply. Please consult the instructions available on the U.S. Embassy or Consulate website where you will apply.

The State Department’s recommended first source of up-to-date visa information is https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.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 2018 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.
