Travel Guidance and Information for International Attendees

We recommend that participants fly into one of our three international airports: Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), or Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). BWI is closest to Annapolis (approximately 30 minutes from BWI to downtown Annapolis). A variety of ride hiring services are available from all airports, including Taxis, Uber, and Lyft. For additional airport travel information and options, explore the Visit Annapolis site here: https://www.visitannapolis.org/plan/transportation/ .

Participants traveling to the United States from another country may need to apply for a Visitor (B) or Business Visa (B-1). To determine what type of visa you will need, or if you are eligible for a Visa Waiver, please visit US VISA INFORMATION RESOURCES.

Further information on the visa application process can be found HERE. The application process can take several months, and is dependent largely on appointment availability at your local U.S. embassy. You can check the approximate wait time for embassy appointments at the included link.
