Obtaining a Visa to enter the USA:
Once the event bid list is published and your team is formally registered, we encourage you to make specific
inquiries about obtaining a visa to enter the USA. You are responsible for obtaining the correct paperwork to visit
the USA to compete at WUCC 2022.
Please note that we cannot provide specific advice on the process, but we do strongly recommend that you get
started as soon as possible. The LOC can provide your team administrator with a letter confirming your team’s
registration at the event. To do that we generally require confirmation of the following details for all the members
of your team: full name (as shown on passport), passport number, date of birth and role on team (i.e. player,
coach, manager, etc).
Please make sure you leave us some time to produce this document: do not assume that we can send it back the
Note: We cannot and will not provide a formal “invitation” to attend the event and non-ability to enter the USA
is not grounds for a request of a refund for a team and/or player fees. We recommend EVERY TEAM makes
specific inquiries and fully understand visa and travel requirements.
WFDF and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) are unable to provide specific advice on your visa application process. WUCC 2022 is able to confirm that teams are registered and or that players are part of a roster to play at our events.
TEAMS - All teams should have received their letter proving their registration. If your team did not receive a letter, please contact WUCC 2022. As a reminder, the letter confirms your team, division, and fees paid.
INDIVIDUALS - If you need to be personally named as part of the team participating, WUCC 2022 can only provide such a letter after your National Federation sends the tournament a list of rostered players that they endorse to form the official roster to play at club events and after players fees are paid.
Once WFDF is provided with the letter of endorsement (email from National Federation to Karina Woldt), WUCC 2022 can provide individuals with a specific letter for your visa applications and interviews. Fill out this form and WFDF will return your specific letter within 48 hours.
An example endorsement letter is available on Page 2 of this PDF. National Federations will have an option to change the roster if visa's are declined - you will all be asked again for the official rosters again at a later date.
Lastly, for anyone asking for a physical address as part of your visa application or entry to the host country, you should include the address of your hotel. Local Organizing Committee, WFDF staff, or WFDF board are unable to provide their personal addresses to you for this purpose.
