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.

Contact the car rental company directly for specific information.  Please note that a number of the official hotels will be within walking distance of the exposition.  Housing will open in early 2021.

Required Change of Address Notice

Visitors staying in the United States longer than six months must notify the United States government of any change in their residential address within 10 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 United States

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.
