Visa Invitation Letter Online Form - for SID Display Week Attendees and Committee Members

To obtain a visa invitation letter for Display Week 2020, please fill out the form below. The visa invitation letter is free, but email form only.  We can express mail a signed hardcopy on request but you have to provide your shipping account (FedEx, DHL etc.) of your choice to bear the shipping charges.  To eliminate the need for priority mail we recommend requesting visa invitation letters at least three months before you need to come to USA.  For individuals whose papers are accepted at Display Week, we recommend submitting a visa invitation letter as soon as your paper is accepted. 

Please note we cannot mail letters without your shipping account details (information can be entered in the form below).  Owing to the number of requests we receive, please allow one week for form processing, and at least a week for the hard copy version to arrive by express mail due to overseas customs.  Please note we can make no guarantee about mail service performance, and several letters have gone missing in the mail over the years, so we urge you to apply early so there's time to handle any problems if the letter is rejected by your passport office for want of additional specific information, or an invitation is delayed in customs/by the postal carrier/by any backlog at your local consulate, etc.

Many countries have specific visa invitation letter data requirements which may not be covered by the fields below, such as title of publications for speakers, etc.  Please put any of this required supplemental data for your passport office in the Other Required Info field below.

Please note this form is for Display Week  exhibitors, committee participants, and attendees only.

Please note that if express mail is selected, SID office will mail the visa invitation letter only if  you provide shipping account # to bear the shipping charges
