Change in Policy for U.S. Visa Waiver Program:
Enables nationals of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa. As of April 1, 2016, travelers using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) must have an e-Passport, which includes an embedded electronic chip. An e-Passport has a unique symbol on the cover.
Additionally, international travelers should be aware of a change in policy regarding the VWP. Travelers in the categories below are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States under the VWP.
These individuals will still be able to apply for a visa using the regular appointment process at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. For more information, go to cbp.gov/travel/international-visitors/visa-waiver-program.
