Terms and Conditions:

All applicants should read the corresponding Terms and Conditions before filling out an application form.

Visa Requirements:

International applicants who are based outside of the United States are responsible for obtaining their own visa to travel to the US. Please note that the organizer’s responsibility is limited only to supplying the invitation letter to the event. Friendship Ambassadors Foundation is not affiliated with US embassies abroad and has no ability to influence the embassies’ decisions on applicant visas.

If you need to apply for a U.S. visa to attend the event, you will receive an invitation letter after your administration fee is received. Please note that this letter does not serve as your official admission letter, nor guarantee acceptance of your U.S. visa application.

Once your U.S. visa application is granted by an embassy, you must notify us on or before January 11, 2019. If you are not able to obtain your visa by first attempt, we suggest that you reassess your application requirements to see if there are any insufficient documents and decide whether you wish to apply again. Unfortunately, we are unable to make any refunds in the case that visa is not granted, as processing your application, registration, and document issuance entail administrative costs.
