See You Next Year, Oct. 31-Nov. 2 | Atlanta, GA

International Visitors

Foreign travelers coming to the United States to conduct temporary business—for example, business meetings and consultations, attending conventions and conferences, or negotiating contracts—need a nonimmigrant visitor visa unless they qualify for entry under the Visa Waiver Program. Learn more about business travel to the U.S.

Visa Requirements


The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) allows citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States without a visa for stays of 90 days or less, when they meet all requirements.  

Learn more about the Visa Waiver Program and which countries participate. Note: Travelers must be eligible to use the VWP and have a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval prior to travel.  


If your country of citizenship does not participate in the Visa Waiver Program and you require a visitor visa to enter the United States, you are encouraged to check current requirements and apply early. U.S. regulations now require security checks for most visitor visas, resulting in a process that may take three months or more to complete. Please visit the U.S. State Department's website to learn more about the type of visa you will require and the visa application process.
