International Travel to the 2012 AERA Annual Meeting in Vancouver
International Travel to the 2012 AERA Annual Meeting in Vancouver
Passports Required for U.S. Citizens
January 2012 

Planning to attend the 2012 Annual Meeting in Vancouver,
April 13–17? Keep these important travel requirements in mind:

  • A passport is required for all U.S. citizens. To apply for or renew your U.S. passport, please visit the U.S. passport website. The U.S. Department of State needs approximately 4 to 6 weeks of processing time, and there is a fee to apply for or renew your passport. Complete the application process now to avoid rush charges and ensure that you will have your passport in time for the trip.
  • Canada has entry and visa requirements that may affect you. To find out what you need, visit the Come to Canada website or contact your nearest Canadian visa office. Within Canada, you may also call Immigration Canada at 1-888-242-2100.
  • Upon entry to Canada, non-Canadian visitors will need to clear customs and immigration. The Vancouver Convention Bureau recommends that meeting attendees indicate the purpose of their visit to Canada as traveling to attend a conference or meeting. Reference to “work” or “working” may result in further questioning by immigration officers.
