Visa Information

Letters of invitation to obtain travel visas are offered through the  badge registration process. You must first register for a badge in order  to request your letter of invitation. Because the visa application  process may take 90 days or longer, we ask that you request your letters  of invitation at least 90 days prior to your travel dates.

These  helpful tips may make your visa interview process easier.

You may request the letter of invitation during the SVIIF 2020  registration process be sent electronically, mailed or both. The letter  won’t be issued until your registration is complete and approved.
