ePassports Required for Travelers Using the Visa Waiver Program
Giselle Carson Apr 20, 2016 in Immigration News
The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is used by citizens from 38 countries to travel without a visa to the U.S.
However, starting in April, the DHS will require these travelers to obtain a visa to travel to the U.S. If they don’t have an ePassport.
An e-Passport contains an electronic security chip, which holds the passenger’s biographical information including name, date of birth and other background information.
