Attendees from Outside the United States

Recently, the United States has updated its visa policies to increase security for citizens and visitors, so the process of applying for your visa may have changed from the last time you applied or may take longer. Please visit the U.S. Department of State website for official information. The Department of State encourages you to apply for your visa as soon as possible. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews so applicants should contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview. Visa wait times are available online here.

A Letter of Invitation will be sent out in the e-mail confirmation upon completing registration. If you have any issues retrieving your Letter of Invitation, please contact the MBAA Registrar at or +1.212.460.9700
