As the world's largest annual event for safety and health professionals, the NSC Congress & Expo welcomes attendees from all over the world. Exhibiting companies want to ensure your safety solutions are addressed and accounted for.
Apply for your VISA EARLY!
Attendees and Exhibitors who are not United States (U.S.) citizens, but will be traveling to the U.S. for the 2018 National Safety Council Congress & Expo, may need to obtain a temporary VISA to enter the country. We encourage Congress & Expo Attendees and Exhibitors who need to obtain VISAs to start the application process at least three to four months prior to the 2018 NSC Congress & Expo.
Official information on U.S. VISA policies and procedures is available from the U.S. Department of State.
U.S. immigration rules have changed, so even if you didn't previously need a VISA, we strongly encourage you review the current VISA Waiver Program requirements.
