Have you booked to travel to America this summer? If so there have been some important recent changes to the US immigration policy, which may affect you if you’re looking to travel to the USA over the coming months.
Under new rules, travellers from within the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) – including the UK, Ireland, Australia and the Netherlands – will need to hold a passport with an integrated chip (an ePassport).
If your passport dates from 2005 or 2006, it should be chipped already. But if not, you’ll need to take action to update your passport.
