Other International Travel Information
USA Diving has been designated by the United States Olympic Committee as the National Governing Body for the sport of diving. With this designation, USA Diving is a member of United States Aquatic Sports, which is the only organization in the United States recognized by FINA for the control and supervision of all competitive aquatic sports between the United States and other members of FINA.

Failure to comply with FINA requirements can affect the rights of the athletes to compete in future international events, including suspension for more than a year. USA Diving is required to enforce FINA regulations and apply the required sanctions or penalties to any person who violates them.

Coaches and athletes contemplating participation in such a meet or trip — whether abroad or in the U.S. with other countries in attendance — should carefully consider the policy and the potential consequences of ignoring the FINA regulations. Any athlete, coach, or official traveling internationally MUST be a member of USA Diving, and the trip MUST be approved by USA Diving. Athletes, coaches, and officials travelling to the U.S. from other countries must also be members of their federation. This is a FINA policy.

For more details, please read the International Travel Policy.

If you’re an official, coach, or athlete planning to travel internationally for an event, please complete our Independent International Travel Permit Application, and submit it to for approval no later than 45 days prior to the start of the event. This is required for both travel outside the U.S. and for organizations that wish to host other countries in the U.S.
