Obtaining a Visa
Non-US citizens/residents traveling to the US to attend NAWLA2023 may require a visa. For more information, please visit the U.S. Department of State’s webpage. As the conference organizers cannot intervene with U.S. embassies and consulates on behalf of prospective attendees, please familiarize yourself with visa requirements as early as possible, well in advance (typically several months) of the meeting. Some embassies or consulates may have long wait times for scheduling a visa interview; current visa wait times can be found here.

If you need a personal letter of invitation, please contact Ms. Harriet Baldwin, Associate Professional Specialist Emerita in the College of Arts & Letters at the University of Notre Dame, with the subject line “NAWLA2023 Invitation Letter.”
