ePassport

Important note regards travel to the USA.

New rules introduced by the USA’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on 1 April 2016 could see travellers from around 38 countries being refused entry under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), even if they have a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). The little publicised changes require all travellers entering the United States, under the VWP, to have a biometric chip style passport in addition to their ESTA, meaning those with an older style non-chip passport will be refused entry into the USA.
