This visa allows you to stay up to 90 days at a time over a two year period.

All passengers travelling to America MUST hold a passport with an integrated chip (effective from 1st April 2016). As well as this, anyone who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen since 1 March 2011 or who are dual nationals of these states, can no longer travel to the US under the visa waiver program. A full visa will now be required (for stays of 90 days or less).Some exceptions apply on a case-by-case basis. Categories of travellers who may be eligible for a waiver include:
  • Individuals who travelled on behalf of international organisations, regional organisations, and sub-national governments on official duty;
  • Individuals who travelled on behalf of a humanitarian non-government official;
  • Individuals who travelled as a journalist for reporting purposes;
  • Individuals who travelled to Iran for legitimate business-related purposes following the conclusion of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (July 14, 2015); and
