If you haven’t begun the registration process, go to www.SEMAShow.com and choose attendee registration. On the registration profile page, click on “need a visa letter.” If you have already registered and received a confirmation (but did not request a visa letter), access your dashboard through the confirmation e-mail and click on “edit profile” on the dashboard. Once inside your profile page, click on “edit” again and click on “need visa”.

You must register before the visa letter can be sent, and the letter may only be made for the individual’s name and company name in his or her registration record. Invite letters are sent via email instantaneously as a bounce back to the email address you provide during registration. Emailed, printed-out copies of the visa letter are acceptable. Show Management no longer prepares and express-mails abroad personalized letters because originals of visa invite letters are no longer required. The bounce-back, emailed invitation letter is sufficient. It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of any government visa requirements, and allow sufficient time for the visa entry application process. Attendees and exhibitors should contact their nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing and requirements related to their visa application. SEMA will not contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants or provide any other assistance relating to visa issues. Any and all costs associated with applying for a visa are the sole responsibility of the attendee or exhibitor in need of the letter.
