Visa Requirements

Conference participants should familiarize themselves with visa requirements well in advance of the conferences. The 2018 Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC’18) organizers encourage you to apply for your visa as early as possible, at least 3 to 4 months prior to this conference.

Please note: Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews. Visa Wait Times for Interview Appointments and Processing by City are available here.

ASC’18 CANNOT INTERVENE with U.S. Embassies abroad or the State Department on behalf of any participant. However, if you need a personal letter of invitation to attend the Conference, please contact Centennial Conferences (email or fax: [001] 303-499-2599) and provide the following information:

Full Name
Complete Mailing Address
Fax Number (if you wish to receive a faxed copy of the letter)
Abstract Control ID(s)

The letter we provide you will reflect your status as known to us at the time (abstract accepted and a place in the program assigned; paid registration received, etc.). The letter does not imply financial support from the conference. Your letter will be EMAILED to you. A hard copy will be faxed and mailed to you via regular airmail only if requested. Any fees for sending letters via express mail must be paid for by the requester.

The majority of oversees attendees will be eligible for the “Visa Waiver Program”. Details can be found here.
