Registration and Housing for Delegations

To receive a letter of invitation, you must first register for GSX. Your letter will be available on the confirmation page and in your confirmation email, after you complete registering. Please note: your registration fees will be refunded if the visa was applied for well in advance of GSX 2019 and proof is shown that a visa could not be granted even though all requested documents were  submitted in a timely manner. Refund requests must be made in writing and emailed with the proof to GSX 2019 Registration at asis@wyndhamjade.com, no later than 9 August 2019. Refund requests received after that date will not be accepted.

ASIS International will review special requests for refunds after GSX 2019 and no later than 18 November 2019. ASIS retains the right to determine what constitutes an emergency situation, if additional supporting documentation is required, and if a refund will be given, and ASIS’ decision will be final. ASIS will not refund due to travel carrier cancellations or other unforeseen incidents beyond attendees control. All attendees are urged to purchase personal travel insurance.

Hotel rooms can be reserved for delegation members on a separate page than the one connected to the registration page. Please use this site to reserve housing for delegation members: https://www.mcisemi.com/asis2019/international

Visa​s

The United States has updated its visa policies to increase security for our citizens and visitors. It will likely take you longer to get a visa than it used to, and you will find that a few new security measures have been put into place. Please visit the U.S. State Department for complete information on visa policies, how to get a visa, visa news, or to locate a consular office. For details that may apply specifically to your country, visit usembassy.gov.

Please note: ASIS International has no influence on the decision of any U.S. Embassy or Consulate to approve or reject any application for a visa to enter the United States. As an applicant, it is your responsibility to present legitimate reasons for attending GSX 2019 and provide all necessary documentation to support your request for a visa. ASIS International cannot assist you with the visa application or interview process, nor can we contact the Embassy or Consulate on your behalf to support your visa application.
