AGU 2010 Fall Meeting: News media registration opens, book hotels now
Date:8/26/2010

IOs is at the end of this message.

A full program of press conferences is in development and will be announced in later advisories. We are planning a field trip for News Media registrants on Sunday, 12 December. So, if you are coming from afar and would like to attend, please plan to arrive on Saturday, 11 December. Details on the field trip and on how to register for it will be announced in future media advisories.

2. U.S. visa regulations for international reporters

All journalists who are not United States citizens or permanent residents need a visa to cover scientific meetings in the U.S. This applies equally to journalists from "Visa Waiver Program" countries (e.g., Western Europe), who do not normally need visas to enter the U.S. as tourists. This is not a new requirement, but it is now being enforced strictly.

The visa for journalists is an "I" visa, issued by the American Embassy or an American Consulate in your home country. If you are planning to cover Fall Meeting, please apply early for your "I" visa. The procedure is not complicated, but depending on the volume of total visa applications, it may take some time to be issued.

The U.S. Department of State has posted a fact sheet about visas for journalists on its Web site, which you are urged to consult: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1276.html

3. Book hotel rooms now for the best selection

With over 16,000 scientists and some 200 journalists and press officers expected at Fall Meeting, it makes sense to book your hotel room now at preferential rates. Cancellations are allowed without penalties up to 72 hours prior to arrival. By booking now, you are more likely to get your preferred location or rate, whichever is your top priority.

A wide range of hotel options are available with varying rates, levels of service, and locations. Limited,
