Travelers from Canada and Mexico are reminded to bring a valid passport to enter the US. Citizens of 35 countries in Europe and the Far East may visit the U.S. for up to 90 days without a visa if the attendee has a passport with a computer-readable bar code under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Details can be found at the U.S. Department of State web site or contact your local American consulate.
International visitors to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program are now required to apply for travel authorization online. To apply visit the Electronic System for Travel Authorization web site HERE.
Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)
Electronic System for Travel Authorization is an automated system used to determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
ESTA cannot be used instead of a U.S. visa when a visa is required. Travelers traveling on valid visas are not required to apply for an ESTA. Approved ESTA applications are valid for a period of two years, and multiple trips to the United States without the traveler having to re-apply for another ESTA.
If you do not already have current ESTA authorization, we recommend that you apply as soon as you know you will be traveling to the United States under the VWP. There are other requirements and limitations associated with the ESTA system, please visit the ESTA page for more information.
