Visa Requirements

One of the first steps on your way to attending the AORN Surgical Conference & Expo 2015 is to determine whether or not you need a visa to enter the United States. The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa. For more information, check the U.S. State Department's Visa Waiver Program.

Please refer to the latest visa requirements on:

  • Travel without a visa
  • Temporary visitors to the U.S.
  • Visa types
  • Visa wait times

AORN is happy to provide visa invitation letters to AORN members and AORN Surgical Conference & Expo 2014 registered attendees who require such documentation for obtaining their visa. Please download the Invitation Letter or contact AORN Customer Service for a personalized letter of invitation.
