International Visitors

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) actively hosts foreign delegations seeking information on entrepreneurship and small business programs.


SBA's International Visitors service is coordinated by our Office of International Trade (OIT).  Visitors are received based upon schedule availability and required clearances.  SBA primarily facilitates sessions at our Headquarters in Washington, DC but can also refer delegations to local service offices or partner locations throughout the United States.


We work closely with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs/International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).
