Important Visa Information for the NAMM Show
Plan ahead for travel abroad—make sure you have a current visa or ESTA application filed.
For those attendees traveling to the NAMM Show from another country, make sure you are set with your travel documents before the 2013 NAMM Show, January 24–27.
If you are required to obtain a visa to travel to the U.S., you may request a letter of invitation from NAMM. This letter will inform the U.S. Embassy that you will be in the U.S. to conduct business at the 2013 NAMM Show and will return to your home country when the show is over. The visa application process may take 90 days or longer so please request letters of invitation at least 90 days prior to travel dates for the 2013 NAMM Show.
If you do not need a visa to travel to the U.S. you are required to register for Electronic System for Travel Authorization, ESTA. Please log on to https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov and register before the date you will travel. There are now 36 countries participating in the U.S. Department of State Visa Waiver Program. If you are coming from outside the United States to exhibit or attend the 2013 NAMM Show, find out if your country is on the list of Visa Waiver Countries at http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/without/without_1990.html.
