Travel & Visa Information
We look forward to welcoming attendees to Chicago on October 5–9.
International attendees, please familiarize yourself with the requirements to enter the U.S.
Non-U.S. residents may need a visa to enter the United States for Neuroscience 2024. 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.
