International Travelers: A U.S. visitors (B-1) visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a port of entry and request admission into the United States from a U.S. immigration inspector. Begin your visa application process as early as possible as it could take several months to process.

The US-VISIT program is now in effect and applies to all visitors (with limited exceptions) holding non-immigrant visas, regardless of country of origin. Visitors will now have their two index fingers scanned and a digital photograph will be taken.

Visitors from Visa Waiver Program countries
For 35 countries in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), citizens meeting the visa waiver criteria will not need a visa but they must have a machine-readable passport. In addition, as of Jan. 12, 2009, travelers visiting the United States from VWP countries must be approved for travel electronically prior to boarding a carrier to the United States. Travelers must fill out the forms online at least 72 hours in advance of travel.

Registration via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is intended to replace the I-94W paper form by collecting biographical information over the Internet from visitors from countries that participate in the VWP.

ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Bermuda are required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document, or an alien registration card, Form I-551, if applicable.
