INTERNATIONAL TRAVELER TIPS & INFO
The Specialty Coffee Expo welcomes visitors from more than 75 countries to the annual Expo each year. Below are resources we have compiled to help make your travel and show experience as convenient and successful as possible.
Apply for Your Visa Early
Advanced travel planning is important as visa applications are subject to a great degree of scrutiny. Applying for a visa can be a lengthy process, so we recommend that you start early. Begin the application process four to five months before Expo. Note: Many embassies require proof of registration before granting a visa.
Not all countries require an interview, so it is recommended to check your local consulate office if this will be required. It's also advisable to ask if there is a wait to schedule interviews and, if so, how long it may take, as some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling Visa interviews. Visa wait times are available here.
Letter of Invitation
Letters of Invitation are available through the event registration process. To obtain a visa letter, you may do so when you register for the Specialty Coffee Expo starting December 2, 2019. Your visa letter will be automatically generated through the system and you will be able to obtain a free electronic copy of the letter upon finalizing your registration.
