Travel & Visa Information
We look forward to welcoming attendees to San Diego on November 12-16. Due to COVID-19, there are uncertainties regarding travel. Please consult the travel resources listed below in order to help plan your trip. Consistent with national and international public health guidance, SfN strongly recommends all of those planning to attend Neuroscience 2022 to be fully vaccinated if possible, subject to the advice of their personal physician. SfN expects all in-person attendees of Neuroscience 2022 to assess and implement for themselves all local, national, and international safety protocols to ensure the most productive and healthiest in-person meeting.
International attendees, please familiarize yourself with the requirements to enter the US.
U.S. Department of State list of country-specific travel information.
Non-U.S. attendees of Neuroscience 2022 should review their individual entry requirements for their return trip home. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result may be required.
Non-U.S. residents may need a visa to enter the United States for Neuroscience 2022. If you already have a U.S. visa, check the expiration date to ensure your visa will not expire before or during your planned travel dates. Citizens of countries meeting the visa waiver criteria do not need a visa to enter the United States. If you are eligible to travel on the Visa Waiver Program, but prefer to have a visa in your passport, you may still apply for a Business (B-1) visa. A list of countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) can be found on the State Department website.
Obtaining a Visa
After identifying that a visa is needed, foreign travelers should contact the U.S. Embassy Consular Section in their country to determine visa processing time frames. For up-to-date information, access the DOS website.
