Passport and Visa Waiver Programme

Biometric passports and the USA Visa Waiver Programme

Since 1 April 2016, all UK passengers travelling to the USA are required to hold a passport with an integrated chip, also known as a biometric or e-passport, to enter the country.
Biometric passports were introduced to the UK in October 2006 so the majority of holidaymakers will have the correct passport. However, if your passport was issued before October 2006, it may not meet the entry requirements and you will need to renew your passport before you travel.
