Visa Waiver Program

The visa waiver program (VWP) allows business or pleasure visitors from 26 countries to enter the U.S. without having to apply for a visa. The period of admission is ninety (90) days and cannot be extended. In addition, a visa waiver entrant cannot change to any other non-immigrant visa classification. Instead, the individual must depart the U.S., apply for a visa abroad and then return.

Individuals who have prior immigration violations will likely need to apply for a U.S. visa even if they come from a visa waiver country.

All Visa Waiver entrants must register with the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) at least three days prior to departure.
