For International Travelers

Visa Application Process

If you would like to request an invitation letter from RIMS for your visa application, you must first register for the meeting. Please allow five to seven business days for processing. Once you register, you will receive a registration confirmation number. Please email this registration number, your full name, institution/company name, and mailing address to to request your invitation letter.

RIMS encourages you to start your visa application process as soon as possible. Because of U.S. State Department regulations, U.S. embassies and consulates may require a face-to-face interview for most non-immigrant visa applications. For more information, please visit
