Information for International Participants

International participants should view this important information about traveling to the United States.

Invitation Letter

International attendees of JMM Meetings often need a letter of invitation from AMS in order to obtain a visa to visit the US. Because of increased scrutiny of visa applicants, many potential attendees of scientific meetings in the United States have experienced unusual delays in obtaining travel visas.

If you need a letter of invitation from AMS and have not yet requested it, please send email to and an invitation will be forwarded as soon as possible. In order to compose and send your letter, we will need your document number, email address, and your complete mailing address.

Reminder: Machine Readable Passports Required by June 26, 2005

The Department of Homeland Security reminds travelers from the 27 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries that as of June 26, 2005, they must have a machine-readable passport to enter the United States without a visa. Beginning June 26, 2005, transportation carriers will be fined US $3,300, per violation, for transporting any VWP traveler to the United States without a machine-readable passport. Similarly, VWP travelers arriving in the United States on that date without a machine-readable passport should not anticipate being granted one-time entry into the country. As an alternative for persons with immediate travel plans who are unable to obtain a machine-readable passport in time, the individual may apply for a U.S. visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy abroad.
