Visa Information — Abstracts submitted from outside the United States

International abstract submitters who plan to attend the 2nd World Congress on Electroporation may need to apply for a VISA to travel to the meeting in Norfolk, VA, USA. For more information on visa requirements and for the Visa Waiver Program, please go to https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visa-waiver-program.html. Please be aware that the time required to obtain a VISA has increased. An invitation letter will be sent to abstract submitters that have checked “Yes” that a letter is needed upon receiving their abstract submission.
