Obtain a US Visa
Because your time and resources are important for us, we request our International guests to obtain a US Visa BEFORE they purchase their International Tickets for the International Pathfinder Camporee.
In this way, resale your tickets in case of visa denial won’t be necessary.
Camporee Tickets are not reimbursable.
Tips on Preparing for a Visa Interview
- Pray for God’s guidance.
- Follow US Consular instructions exactly, including evidence of travel ticket, funds for trip, and intention to return to your country. Learn more here.
- Print and include the Camporee Introduction Letter. A letter of invitation is NOT required and will not be given as this is an open event.
- Add a letter on church letterhead from your church or regional youth director, verifying you are an active participant, of good character, in the local Adventist church.
- Print the Camporee Week Schedule and show if asked for details about activities.
There is a limited number of International Tickets for the Camporee, that is why is so important to obtain your visa as soon as allowed by your local US Embassy.
Keep in mind that in 2019, International tickets sold out 8 months before the Camporee, so hurry up!
