ObesityWeek is an International Event

Attendees come from far and wide, as do our course and session leaders, paper presenters and keynote speakers.

Special Events for International Guests

ASMBS has planned a reception for our out-of-country attendees. The International Guest Reception will take place November 2 location TBA, with cocktails and light appetizers being served.

Dr. Raul Rosenthal, President of ASMBS, and Dr. Natan Zundel, President of IFSO, will be at the reception to present and congratulate the winners of the international research awards.

Travel Visas and Documents

Travel visa applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. The Department of State recommends applying at least three months before the meeting. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews, so applicants should first contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview. Contact the appropriate Consular section at the Embassy or Consulate for answers to questions about procedures for scheduling interview appointments, required fees, and more.
