Travel Visas

Citizens of foreign countries may need a travel visa to enter United States. In some cases, these can take months to acquire, and may require specialized documentation. Therefore, we recommend that participants start visa application process as soon as possible. If you need a letter of invitation from the Organizing Committee, in order for your visa to be processed, please contact Przemek Dera by email at

Getting to Oahu

Honolulu is located on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu is Hawaii’s major airport, serving as the entry point for most of Hawaii’s visitors. All major domestic carriers and many international carriers serve Oahu, so you can get here from just about anywhere. The airport is about 20 minutes by car from the conference venue and the university campus. There are share ride shuttles available at the airport, and a number of taxi companies offer private rides.

Traveling on Oahu

You can get around by car rental, shuttle, taxi, Uber, Biki rental bicycles or Oahu’s public transportation system. Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Island. Others rent mopeds and motorcycles. But to really experience all that Oahu offers, you should consider reserving a rental car in advance from the Honolulu International Airport. Please be aware that majority of hotels charge parking fees (typically $15-$25 per night). Parking on the university campus also involves parking fees.

Oahu’s city transportation system is named “TheBus.” Fares are reasonable, routes are extensive and there are special visitor passes for multiple day uses. For more information on fares, bus routes to popular attractions and other useful information visit HTTP://WWW.THEBUS.ORG.

Another affordable option is the trolley. The routes and destinations are not as extensive as TheBus but the trolley goes to most major tourist attractions and offer tickets for unlimited rides over a certain number of days. For more information visit HTTP://WWW.WAIKIKITROLLEY.COM.
