Travel Visas
Please contact the United States Consular office in your country as soon as possible to determine the procedure for obtaining travel visas. The current world situation has changed these processes and you should contact them immediately with your travel concerns. The United States State Department has alerted all of the consular offices in the countries that are member nations of the ICF to this upcoming event.

Please note that neither the Organizing Committee nor the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C. can provide assistance with respect to visa denials for applicants wishing to attend the World Championships in September. If a visa is refused, the visa applicant must deal directly with the United States consular office that adjudicated the visa application. We recommend that all participants who require United States visas consult the Department of State's visa Web Site at Visa applicants should consult the "Visa Reciprocity Tables" and the "Frequently Asked Questions" sections for information about application fees, other charges, visa validity and other important items pertaining to travel to the United States. The site also provides the DS-156 nonimmigrant visa application form AND direct links to most United States consular offices around the world.   This link goes to the United States Department of State - International Athletics liaison
