IMPORTANT PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS FOR VISA WAIVER PROGRAM CUSTOMERS

As of April 1, 2016, all Visa Waiver Program (VWP) travellers must have a valid e-Passport, along with a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) for travel to the United States. If your traveller has a passport issued on or after October 26, 2006 and it is not an e-Passport, they must obtain a visa or a new e‑Passport.

e‑Passports are easily identified with the following symbol on the passport cover:

  • They have a valid passport with a machine-readable zone issued before October 26, 2005; or
  • Their passport includes a digital photograph and was issued between October 26, 2005 and October 25, 2006.
