Important information if you are travelling to the NACS Show from abroad.
Visa Application Process
Changes to the visa policy and procedures are expected to increase the amount of time it takes to obtain a visa. It is extremely important that you apply for your visa early.
Although information on the changes to the visa application process is outlined here, please refer to the U.S. Department of State's Visa information web page for the most complete, up-to-date information. You can also refer to the U.S. Department of State's Business Visa Center for more information.
During the registration process, if using an international address, you will have the option to create and print your personalized visa cover letter.
A personal appearance interview is required as a standard part of this process. This can increase the processing time. It is expected fewer waivers will be granted for the interview portion of the process.
NACS cannot assist you with the interview process, nor can anyone representing NACS call the embassy or consulate on your behalf to provide support for granting a visa. If you are denied a visitor visa, you may re-apply if there is new evidence to overcome the basis for the refusal. In the absence of new evidence, consular officers are not required to re-examine such cases.
