    • A list of the 38 countries taking part in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) can be found online.
    • Attendees from Non-VWP Countries (including Canada).

For those wishing to travel to the U.S. to attend Community-Engaged Alliance events, a “non-work” visiting visa is required for guests coming from non-VWP countries. Citizens of non-VWP countries (including Canada) should obtain a B-1 or B-2 temporary stay visa typically awarded when clearing customs at the US border as part of standard access to the U.S. on business (not work) trips to an industry business & networking conference or event.

If ANY paid employment is part of your intended time in the U.S. during which you attend an event sponsored by Community-Engaged Alliance (whether or not this payment is connected to either attending or presenting at an Community-Engaged Alliance event), you must obtain a work visa in advance of entry, separate from the process described here.

  • Attendees from VWP Countries (including Europe & Australia). For anyone traveling from the 38 countries that are part of the VWP, you are able to travel to the U.S. without a visa for stays of 90 days or less if, you meet all of the requirements for this type of travel as explained online. It is recommended that those meeting this description apply for a passport or “visitor visa” at least 90 days in advance of the date you wish to travel.
