As an international participant of JLC LIVE, this section features information about your Letter of Invitation, VISA application form and links to locate your U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
As an attendee or exhibitor at JLC LIVE, you must do several things in advance to prepare for your trip. Generally, international travelers need a VISA to enter the U.S. However, travelers from certain eligible countries may be able to visit the U.S. without a VISA, through the VISA Waiver Program (VWP).
If you are from a country that does not participate in the VWP, you will need to make an appointment with your U.S. Embassy or Consulate for a VISA interview.
The turnaround time for most VISA applications is 30 days, but in some cases may take considerably longer. It is recommended to apply for your VISA two months before your scheduled trip in order to avoid delays in processing. You may contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate for current wait times.
Appropriate documentation, such as an Invitation Letter, can help demonstrate the purpose of your trip is to attend and/or exhibit at JLC LIVE and that you intend to return home. This personalized Letter of Invitation will be mailed, faxed or emailed to you once you complete the VISA Letter of Invitation online form as you are registering for the show. You should bring this letter to your VISA interview as a supporting document.

Unfortunately, JLC LIVE and Hanley Wood Exhibitions have no influence over the issue of a VISA; therefore, we are not able to contact U.S. Embassies or Consulates in support or on behalf of an individual attempting to gain entry into the U.S. to attend JLC LIVE. Any specific questions should be directed toward your Embassy.
If you require a VISA Letter prior to our registration system opening or if you need assistance please contact us directly at 972-536-6300 or email@example.com and we will be happy to process your request.
