Changes To USA Waiver Visa Application
People wanting authorisation to enter the United States of America under the visa waiver scheme will have to do so electronically.
As from today, January 12 2009, people wanting authorisation to enter the United States of America under the visa waiver scheme will have to do so electronically. They can do this by visiting Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) website.
The Customs and Borders Protection Office at the US Embassy announced that currently 3,700 Britons are applying every day. Applicants may find they have trouble securing their visa. It is recommended, therefore, that those applying for visas do so at least three days (72 hours) ahead of their planned visit, with the necessary information to hand. This includes the standard details of name, date of birth, reason of visitation and address of US accommodation. Also required will be details, if applicable, about criminal records, previous visa revocations or deportation, and communicable diseases.
Applicants not in line with the requirements will be dealt with reasonably, but those that have not registered for an ESTA need to acknowledge the possibility of denied boarding, delayed processing, or even outright refusal of admission.
What follows is the complete list of countries included in the Visa Waiver Programme:
- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
- San Marino
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
