Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program allows nationals of eligible countries to apply for admission to the United States for ninety (90) days or less, as nonimmigrant visitors for business or pleasure, without first obtaining a nonimmigrant visa. Nonimmigrants who enter will be accorded either a Waiver of Tourist (WT) or Waiver of Business (WB) status for no more than 90 days. The visa waiver should NOT be used for students wishing to enter the U.S. to enroll in a full time degree program. The visa waiver status may not be extended or changed to another nonimmigrant status from within the US.
