For questions regarding MASCC membership, please contact the MASCC Office:



A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States generally must first obtain a U.S. visa, a travel document issued by the traveler's country of citizenship that is placed in the traveler's passport.

Certain international travelers may be eligible to travel to the United States without a visa if they meet the requirements for visa-free travel.

It is the responsibility of MASCC/ISOO 2019 participants to obtain a visa if required.  Annual Meeting participants should familiarize themselves with visa requirements well in advance of the Annual Meeting. The MASCC/ISOO organizers encourage you to apply for a visa as early as possible, at least 3 to 4 months before the Annual Meeting.

Complete information on how to apply for a visa to enter the USA can be found on the U.S. Department of State's website.


Letter of Invitation

An official, personalized letter of invitation will be provided to registered participants as a part of the registration procedure. This invitation is prepared solely for visa applications and is not a commitment on the part of the organizers to provide any financial support or confirmation of inclusion in the Scientific Program. Invitation letters can be provided electronically (PDF) or as a hard copy, if required. Hard copies will be mailed via regular post, free of charge. In case of a special delivery (courier) request, a participant will be responsible for all charges.
