Visa Waiver Program (VWP)

VWP is a U.S. government program that enables nationals of 36 participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of up to 90 days without obtaining a visa. VWP travelers are now required to have a valid authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to travel, and are screened at the port of entry into the United States and enrolled in the DHS US-VISIT program.
