We strongly advise you to check the current U.S. requirements. Official information on U.S. visa policies and procedures is available from the U.S. Department of State. (If traveling to the U.S. only for the AAAS Annual Meeting, the traveler falls under the short visit category).
Visa Waiver Program
If you intend to travel under the Visa Waiver Program, you need to complete the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) registration applications or renewals, which requires a $14 payment by credit or debit card. Existing ESTA registrations remain valid through their expiration date.
Acquiring a visa
If you will require a visa to enter the U.S. to attend the 2018 AAAS Annual Meeting, begin planning for the application process now.
