International visitors to San Francisco, California, United States

All international visitors, regardless of country of origin, must present a passport when entering the United States, and in many cases an entry visa is also required.

It is essential that delegates arriving from outside the US have a valid passport with expiration at least six months after the planned date of entry, and any other required travel documents such as an entry visa. Please ensure that you allow enough time to apply for an entry visa should one be required for your arrival and participation at the conference. The Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics, with DREAM Challenges must receive your paid registration before a visa letter can be provided, so we recommend registering early if you require an entry visa.
