Information for International Participants

In light of an evolving legal environment and increased vetting of some visa applicants, the AHA urges all non-US citizens travelling to the annual meeting to inquire as early as possible about visa requirements for travelers from their country. Information on visa applications can be found at the US Department of State website.

Participants who require a formal letter of invitation from the AHA to support their visa application should fill out the visa letter request form. Be sure to list your name as it appears on your passport. See below for important links on visa processes.

Those who normally travel on the visa waiver program should be aware that restrictions announced in January 2016 require certain travelers from visa waiver program countries to obtain a visa before traveling to the United States.
