Letter of Invitation
Conference management will provide you with a personal letter of invitation should this be required in order to obtain funding or a VISA to enter the country. If you need a Letter of Invitation, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All international visitors coming to the United States must either have a valid Visa or come from a Visa waiver country where business and tourist visas to visit the US are not required. To determine if you need a Visa, we suggest that you review the information provided by the US State Department at: http://travel.state.gov
Health & Accident Insurance
All non-immigrant Visa holders are advised to have health and accident insurance that covers your stay. J-1 and J-2 Visa holders are required by law to have this insurance, which must include a minimum of $50,000 per accident or illness and include medical evacuation and repatriation of remains. If your personal insurance meets certain minimum levels, it may be unnecessary for you to purchase additional coverage. Check with a reputable travel agent, with your insurance agent or the Consulate's office.
Foreign Currency Exchange
We recommend that you obtain sufficient US currency before your departure or from one of the currency exchange services located in major port-of-entry airports such as New York or Chicago. Practically all shops, hotels, restaurants in Bloomington accept major credit cards. ATMs machines are readily available at the IMU, throughout campus and in the community of Bloomington. Bloomington banks and shops do not provide currency exchange services.
Participants who are lodged at the Indiana Memorial Union will receive free parking in one of two lots adjacent to the building.
For those commuting or staying off campus, discounted parking coupons will be available at the registration check-in desk. These coupons are valid at either of the two parking lots adjacent to the IMU.
