Changes to US Visa Waiver Scheme

The U.S. Authorities have made changes to their entry requirements which will affect any dual nationality customer who has a passport issued by a country which is eligible under the U.S. Visa Wavier Programme and a passport issued by Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria.

These customers with dual nationality will no longer be able to enter the U.S. using an ESTA under the Visa Waiver Programme.

In addition any customer who has an ESTA and that has visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan or Syria since 1st March 2011 should also expect not to be able to use the Visa Waiver Programme.

These customers will require a U.S. visa for future travel to the United States, and should contact their local US Embassy.
