Important changes to entry requirements for visitors

The nationals of some countries can only travel to the USA if they have a valid visa as they are not eligible for the Visa Waiver Programme.
* Nationals of these countries must hold a Machine-Readable Passport (MRP) in order to travel under the VWP.
Holders of non-MRP passports must obtain a USA visa prior to travelling to the USA.
