I am traveling to NATPE L.A. SCREENINGS INDEPENDENTS from outside the United States. Where should I find visa information for my country?

The U.S. Department of State has added a new feature to its Web site regarding visa wait times. Since visa applications are now under greater scrutiny, the State Department is advising those who wish to travel to the United States for business or other nonimmigrant purposes to plan ahead. The site provides estimated waiting periods to get an interview to apply for a visa and the estimated time it will take to process the application at the consular section. The visa wait times are shown for various locations around the world. The State Department does advise that it is best to check with the local embassy or consular section to confirm the information.
