Visa Waiver and Visa Free Travel

Visa Waiver

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of 38 participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business [visitor (B) visa purposes only] for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.  Nationals of VWP countries must meet eligibility requirements and have a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval prior to travel.  VWP eligible travelers may apply for a visitor (B) visa, if they prefer to do so.

Visa Free Travel

Citizens of Canada and Bermuda travelling to the United States do not require a visa in some circumstances.  Certain purposes of travel, however, require that the traveler apply for a visa at the nearest Embassy or Consulate.  Travelers that have an ineligibility for a visa under U.S. immigration law or have previously violated the terms of their immigration status in the U.S., must apply for a visa.
