ACS GCI recommends that you start this process six months before the conference but not later than three months before the conference. If you are submitting an abstract, you will not be notified of its acceptance until late March which does not allow enough time to obtain a visa before the conference, so please plan in advance.

IMPORTANT: All applicants must be able to qualify for a visa on their own merits under the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The American Chemical Society cannot intervene with the U.S. State Department or an American embassy in another country on behalf of any meeting participant. We are unable to call or generate personal letters to the embassy or consulate on your behalf.
