To welcome international attendees to APS March and April Meetings and to Division Meetings, APS provides general information and resources about the US visa application process. These resources should be seen as a general guide, as regulations may change, and the most up-to-date and accurate information is available through US government websites.
APS values international collaboration among physicists, as well as diversity and inclusion, and the Society seeks to foster a global physics community to assist scientists in their research and networking through our events and programs.
