Are You Traveling Internationally?

Preparing for international travel can take a while. We highly encourage you to start planning now so you can make the most of your trip and get the best price on airfare. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you start planning.

1. Research Required Documentation

  • Timeline for Gathering Documentation: Applying for a passport or visa can take a while. We encourage attendees from countries other than the United States to apply as early as possible, but no later than 3 months before they wish to enter the United States.
  • Do you need a passport? Here is a helpful resource for you to learn about the required documents for entry into the U.S.
  • Do you need a letter of invitation? The office can produce an official letter of invitation to support a visa application. Please email the IASI office with your name and address so we can produce a PDF file for you.

2. Establish Your Budget

  • Travel Costs: Keep in mind air travel, ground transportation, baggage cost, hotels, meals, etc. Save by booking international flights early.

  • Hotel Stay: You can book a discounted hotel room at the symposium hotel Sheraton Portland for $139 per night.

  • When to Register: IASI is offering early bird registration through January 15, 2020. Registering early can save you up to $100. Remember, you can register today and pay later with our "invoice me" option.
