As you begin making your plans to attend this year, please take a moment and review the procedures for obtaining a visa. It's never too early to start securing travel arrangements. Remember, that advanced planning by foreign travelers is absolutely critical, and that the timeframes for visa processing can vary significantly from country to country.
