To make your trip as smooth as possible, please take some time to review this information regarding travel to the United States. If you need assistance, please contact the ET Foundation and we will be glad to answer your questions.
Generally, all international travelers need a visa to enter the United States. Foreign nationals traveling to the U.S. to conduct temporary business need a visitor visa (B-1), unless qualifying for entry under the Visa Waiver Program. Attending the International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar & Expo-ET ’20 qualifies as “temporary business” according to the U.S. State Department website. IMPORTANT: The ET Foundation recommends that you apply for your visa at least three months in advance. You are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and begin the application process early.
