Note: Please send one request per email and from the employer/business email address that matches the requestor’s name and place of employment. IBM employees requesting on behalf of their client need to copy the client when submitting the request as the invitation letter must be sent directly to the traveler but the IBM Employee can be on copy.

If you are a Citizen or a National of a Visa Waiver Program Designated Country, you do not need a visa invitation letter. If you already have a visa to enter the U.S. that covers the timeframe of the conference, the confirmation email of your enrollment should be sufficient for the customs agent at your U.S. point of entry. Please have a printed copy of the confirmation email with your travel papers along with a printed copy of the conference agenda for additional backup. You should not need a visa invitation letter. For more information, it is recommended you review additional details at the U.S. Visas page at the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs website.

The visa invitation letter will be sent as a .pdf file via e-mail to you within 3 business days of receiving the request provided the information is complete. We regret we cannot provide visa invitation letters for additional family members not attending the conference. They should be able to apply for a tourist visa. It is recommended that you have a printed copy of the invitation letter, the confirmation email of your enrollment and the conference agenda with you when you depart for the U.S. Note that your postal mailing address is requested for the addressing of the .pdf version of the letter, no letter is actually mailed.

Please include the full mailing address (street, city, province, country, zip/postal code). Your first and surnames should be as stated on your passport.
