Additional Data needed from VWP entrants By Rohit Turkhud

Rate this Entry
Just a few days ago, on November 3, 2014, Department of Homeland, Secretary Jeh Johnson released a statement relating to additional security enhancements to the Visa Waiver Program.

“For Immediate Release

DHS Press Office

Contact: 202-282-8010

Effective today, those seeking to travel to the United States from countries in our Visa Waiver Program (VWP) will be required to provide additional data fields of information in the travel application submitted via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA). The new information sought includes additional passport data, contact information, and other potential names or aliases. We are taking this step to enhance the security of the Visa Waiver Program, to learn more about travelers from countries from whom we do not require a visa. We are also confident these changes will not hinder lawful trade and travel between our Nation and our trusted foreign allies in the Visa Waiver Program.”

The above statement can be viewed at: http://www.dhs.gov/news/2014/11/03/s...waiver-program
