- Send an email from your employer/business email account that matches the name on your passport. We cannot process requests from public addresses (e.g., @yahoo, @gmail, @msn, etc.). If you are requesting on behalf of the traveler, please include the traveler’s business email address when submitting the request as the invitation letter must be sent directly to the traveler (you will be copied).
- Have the subject line read: Connect 2017 - Visa Invitation Letter - Name – Company/Organization and personalize the "Name" and "Company/Organization" fields with your name as it appears on your passport and your employer name.
- Copy the text under "Information to send in the request" below, insert the responses and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Please send one request per email and from the employer/business email address that matches the requestor’s name and place of employment
If you need additional assistance not related to a visa invitation letter, please email IBMConnect@maritztravel.com.
The visa invitation letter will be sent as a .pdf file via e-mail to you within 3 business days of receiving the request provided the information is complete. The conference dates will be stated, not personalized travel dates. We regret we cannot provide visa invitation letters for additional travel companions not attending the conference. They should be able to apply for a tourist visa. It is recommended that you have a printed copy of the invitation letter, the confirmation email of your enrollment and the conference agenda with you when you depart for the U.S. Note that your postal mailing address is requested for the addressing of the .pdf version of the letter, no letter is actually mailed. Please include the full mailing address (street, city, province, country, zip/postal code) for your country of residence. Your first and surnames should be as stated on your passport.
