Important BUCLD travel info for nationals of countries other than USA, Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda:

DO YOU HAVE A MACHINE-READABLE PASSPORT OR VISA?

The USA has changed its entry procedures as of June 26, 2005 for nationals of 27 countries (see below) who used to be able to enter the USA without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program. As of June 26, nationals from those countries are only able to enter without a visa if they have a machine-readable passport. If they do not have a machine-readable passport, they have to obtain a non-immigrant visa for entry to the USA, from a US consulate or embassy abroad. If you don't have either (1) a machine-readable passport, or (2) a non-machine readable passport and a non-immigrant visa to the USA, it looks like you will not be allowed to board the plane at your point of origin (there's a $3300 per person fine for any airline that allows someone to board that doesn't meet these requirements).

The 27 countries are: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.

Note that citizens of Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda are not affected by this regulation - they do not require machine-readable passports to enter the USA. Nothing is mentioned about citizens of other countries than these 30 - please check regulations carefully.

Full information on the new regulations is available at: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/temp/without/without_1990.html#2
