International participants of WWETT will find information in this section about Letters of Invitation, VISA application forms and links to locate your U.S. Embassy or Consulate
Whether you are an attendee or exhibitor at WWETT, you must do several things in advance to prepare for your trip. Generally, international travelers need a VISA to enter the U.S. Travelers from certain eligible countries may be able to visit the U.S. without a VISA, through the VISA Waiver Program (VWP).
If you are from a country that does not participate in the VWP, you will need to make an appointment with your U.S. Embassy or Consulate for a VISA interview.
What you'll need to know
The turnaround time for most VISA applications is 30 days, but in some cases may take considerably longer. It is recommended to apply for your VISA two to three months before your scheduled trip in order to avoid delays in processing. You may contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate for current wait times.
Appropriate documentation, such as an Invitation Letter, can help demonstrate the purpose of your trip is to attend and/or exhibit at the WWETT Show and that you intend to return home.
