Letter of Invitation for U.S. visitor visa

Requesting a Letter of Invitation

If you are traveling to the U.S. from abroad to attend the MCAA 2023 conference, you will need either a visa waiver (only eligible through Visa Waiver Program) or a non-immigrant visa. If you plan to apply for a visitor visa to attend the MCAA 2023 conference, you may be requested to include an Invitation Letter as part of your visa petition to the U.S. Department of State.

To request an invitation letter, please complete the MCAA 2023 Letter of Invitation Request Form as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact ceaps@illinois.edu.

Please allow 7-10 business days for the conference host to process your request.
