| DISCLAIMER: The information below is intended to assist conference attendees with their travel arrangements. Each individual traveling to the 78th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management is responsible for researching all requirements necessary for entry to The United States specific to his or her case. The Academy of Management has no influence on an individual's application to an Embassy or other agency for a visa to travel to The United States. The Academy is also not responsible for the outcome of an individual's visa application.
Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a non-immigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. The visa allows a foreign citizen, to travel to the United States port-of entry and request permission of the U.S. immigration inspector to enter the U.S. For more information click here: http://travel.state.gov/
