Please note: Persons with an Attendee Badge will not be permitted entry into the Exhibit Hall outside published Show Hours. No one under the age of 16 is permitted at any point.
To enter the Unites States many international visitors will require a visa and this can be a lengthy process. Here are some suggested steps to follow when applying for a visa that may help improve the chance of your application being approved.
- Find the official NAB Show Letter of Invitation that was delivered to your email inbox after you registered for the show. If you can not locate your Letter of Invitation you may contact NABSHOWEXH@maritz.com.
- Fill out and submit the visa application. Include a color printout of your NAB Show Letter of Invitation and your NAB show booth contract to prove the visit as a business dealing.
- Make an appointment at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate within your country as early as possible.
