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


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
