    International Travel

    The ACFE Global Fraud Conference is the world’s largest gathering of fraud fighters, with more than 3,000 attendees representing more than 60 countries. For attendees traveling from outside of the U.S., the following information may be helpful in planning your visit.

    Visa Information

    You may need a visa to enter the U.S. Because of world events, visa applications are subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. The greater scrutiny means a longer waiting period — the State Department recommends that you begin your visa application process well in advance of your travel dates.

    Visa requirements vary from country to country. Contact the U.S. embassy or consulate in the country where you live to determine if you will need a visa and/or a visa support letter to visit the U.S. (You may apply for a visa at any U.S. consular office, but it may be more difficult to qualify if you apply from outside your country of permanent residence.) Locate a consular office.

    The decision to grant visas belongs solely to the embassy/consulate. The ACFE cannot promise that you or your colleagues will receive a visa. Likewise, the ACFE cannot change the decision of the governmental agency should your application be denied. For more information on applying for a visa, visit the U.S. State Department website.

    If you are denied a visa or you do not receive your visa in time to attend, your registration fees will be refunded provided that you notify us prior to the cancellation period as defined in the cancellation policy.

    Letter of Invitation

    Some countries require a letter of invitation to be submitted as part of the visa application process. The ACFE will only issue letters for persons who have registered and paid for the event or conference. The ACFE can send the invitation letter by the following options:

    • Send a PDF of the letter to support your visa application via email. The letter will be in color, so it can be easily printed with a color printer. You will receive it within 1-2 business days of your request.
    • Mail the letter via USPS First Class Priority Mail International. USPS states that it typically takes 6-10 business days to be received, however, delivery is not guaranteed within this time. The shipment can be tracked.
    • Send the letter via Express Mail International. By shipping by this method, you should receive your invitation letter in 3-5 days, however delivery is not guaranteed within this time. The shipment can be tracked. The fee for shipping by Express Mail International can be up to $30 (cost varies by country). This cost will have to be paid prior to the letter being mailed.

    If you need an invitation letter, email the ACFE Events Department at Events@ACFE.com with your request. Because of the number of requests received for visa support letters, please submit your request as soon as possible.
