Quirky, vibrant and trendy are just some of the words regularly used to describe the city, so if that Explain and Send Screenshots https:/Sounds like somewhere you’d like to explore further, take a look at our top things to do in Dallas in a day.

us Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables nationals of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa. For more information visit the U.S. Visa Website and click on Visa Waiver Program.

Travel Approval Required for Visa Waiver Countries

Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries are now required to obtain approval through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to traveling to the United States. This requirement applies to all eligible citizens or nationals traveling under the VWP. ESTA is a web-based system, initially launched in August 2008, which determines the preliminary eligibility of visitors to travel under the VWP prior to boarding a carrier to the United States. It collects the same information as the paper I-94W form that VWP travelers currently fill out en route to the United States. To date, more than 1.2 million ESTA applications have been received, and more than 99.6 percent of applications have been approved, most within seconds. Travelers without an approved ESTA are advised, however, that they may be denied boarding, experience delayed processing, or be denied admission at a U.S. port of entry. Visitors may apply for travel authorization via the ESTA Website.

Tips for Successful Visa Applications

  • Include a letter of invitation from the meeting organizer.
  • When possible, provide proof of professional scientific, and/or education status, society membership and/or meeting registration.
  • Visa applications are expected to provide evidence that they intend to return to their country of residence. Therefore, applications should provide proof of binding or sufficient ties to their home country or permanent residence abroad. Visa applications are more likely to be successful if done in the visitor’s home country.
  • Applicants should present their entire trip itinerary, including travel to any countries other than the United States, at the time of their visa application.
  • All applicants must be able to qualify for a visa on their own merits under the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
