Important information regarding Visa’s for anyone planning a holiday to the USA.
Important information for anyone planning a holiday to the USA:
If you’ve visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, or Yeman since 01 March 2011 you are required to get a US Visa for your visit to the US. If you already have an ESTA you can check your ESTA status here . If you need more information you can contact the US Customs & Border Protection Ageny information centre on the numbers provided on their website or visit the closest US embassy or consulate.
From the 1st of April 2016 you’ll need a biometric passport with an integrated chip (E-Passport) in order to enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Programme. British Passports issued from October 2006 already have this and should have a recognisable symbol on the front cover.
