Visa Information

The World Economic History Congress invites scholars from around the globe to attend its triennial meeting in Boston July 29th through August 3rd 2018. Some attendees may need to apply for and obtain a travel visa to enter the United States. To find out if you are required to travel with a visa, please visit the United States State Department website. On the site, you can find forms and general information on obtaining a travel visa: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas.html

If you require an invitation letter you can use the form below to request one to be sent to you, either electronically or by standard mail. The following information must be provided for us to issue such a letter: Full Name, Institutional Affiliation, Physical Address, Email Address, Panel Title (if applicable), and Paper Title (if applicable). Letters sent by post can take several weeks to arrive and might be subject to interruptions due to circumstances beyond our control. If you have any special instructions, including statements about your funding of the conference visit, please use the special instructions section on the form.

The organizing committee cannot provide any additional assistance in obtaining a travel visa, other than providing personalized invitation letters. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Jeremy Land at jeremy.land@wehc2018.org at any time. Note also that organizers cannot send invitation letters until the participant has registered for the conference.
