Visiting from Abroad
We are proudly partnering with the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and the U.S. Commercial Service offering special opportunities to internationals participating with a delegation.
If you are an international buyer seeking food or agricultural products and interested in obtaining information on and registering for FMI2014 and the U.S. Food Showcase, please contact the Foreign Agricultural Service at a location near you: Field Point of Contact. Feel free to contact the FAS country liaisons who will work on our behalf to assist you with your travel needs and details for the show.
If you are a buyer seeking business ventures, distribution, packaging and/or processing equipment, please contact the U.S. Commercial Service at a location near you: export.gov or visit the International Trade Center page for more information.
Whether this is your first time coming to the Unites States or you are a seasoned traveler, some things you should note from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS):
Medical care in the United States can be very expensive. All visitors should carry adequate health insurance valid for the duration of their stay in the United States.
Driving in the United States
Visitors who wish to rent cars must have a major credit card and a valid driver’s license from their own country. In some cases, an international driver’s license may be required. Contact the car rental company directly for specific information.
Required Change of Address Notice
Visitors staying in the United States longer than six months must notify the U.S. government of any change in their residential address within ten days or face serious consequences. Address notification should be made directly to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) using their required form.
Registration in the US
Federal law requires that all non-U.S. citizens carry evidence of their lawful status with them at all times. This is especially important for all travel, international or domestic. It is advisable to keep copies of all pages of the passport, visa, I-94 Arrival-Departure card, and supporting documents such as DS-2019 forms, in a safe place in case of loss of the original documents.
