International Visa Requirements

U.S. visa policy permits citizens of certain countries to travel to the U.S. without a visa, when they meet certain requirements, under U.S. laws. Determine whether a visa is required for your travel to the conference.

Other international visitors to the U.S. may be required to obtain a business visa to enter the U.S., depending on country of origin. Apply for a business visa.

If you have determined that you need help from the National Association of REALTORS® to obtain your visa, you may be eligible to receive a letter of invitation to attend the conference. Simply fill out the International Visa Invitation Letter Request Form.

All international visitors are advised to check the requirements to enter the U.S. for their country of citizenship well in advance of travel. If you require a visa to travel, we strongly suggest applying for a visa as soon as possible, and at least four months in advance of the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in November.
