Can I pay from an international bank?

CBE only accepts checks from US banks.

We also accept:

  • Paypal
  • American Express, Discover Card, Mastercard, and Visa.
  • Cashier’s Check or International Money Order (IMO)

These are available in different currencies and amounts (typically $10.00 or $20.00) issued by a bank or other financial institution such as American Express.

You buy them and pay for them in your local currency, at which time you will pay a commission.

We unfortunately do not accept wire transfers and cannot pick up money through MoneyGram, Western Union, or other similar agents.

Consult your local bank if you have questions about these options.

Can you write me an invitation letter for a visa?

CBE does not act as a sponsoring organization for any individual or organization attending the conference. A letter of invitation from CBE is not enough for the US embassy to issue a visa. Please work with CBE chapters and local partners in your home country for sponsorship. Once you have local sponsorship, please use your ticket that you receive after registering as evidence of registering for the conference.
