Sometimes I forget the world is not _that_ complex; my experience with the
US embassy made me think this would be immensely harder to get there.

According to the embassy's website, I need no VISA, only a valid passport
(which I have), and the ability to demonstrate what I am visiting the
country for. I presume that a printed invitation or a similar document
should be enough.
