Traveling to the USA

A couple of necessary formalities for visitors from abroad:

Health Insurance

All visitors are required to have proof of health insurance when visiting the USA. Most travel insurance companies provide suitable plans.

Entry visas

The US has a visa waiver scheme for nationals of 37 countries, but eligible people still need to apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) BEFORE they travel.
Other nationalities will need to apply for visas.

Please see the US Department of State's official website for accurate travel information, and bear in mind the application process can take time.

Some participants may require a written invitation to the meeting for these purposes. If this is the case, please contact the Local Organizing Committee at hotwired_loc [at] lcogt.net as soon as possible.
