ObesityWeek Is an International Event
Attendees come from far and wide, as do our course and session leaders, paper presenters and keynote speakers.
Special Events for International Guests
ASMBS has planned a reception for our out-of-country attendees. The International Guest Reception will take place November 4 at The Mixing Room at the beautiful JW Marriott hotel, with cocktails and light appetizers being served.
Dr. John M. Morton, President of ASMBS, and Dr. Rudolf A. Weiner, President of IFSO, will be at the reception to present and congratulate the winners of the international research awards.
Travel Visas and Documents
Travel visa applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. The Department of State recommends applying at least three months before the meeting. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews, so applicants should first contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview. Contact the appropriate Consular section at the Embassy or Consulate for answers to questions about procedures for scheduling interview appointments, required fees, and more.
