Attention Foreign Travelers
The ESTA application now requires the traveler's country of birth information. This applies to new applications submitted on or after December 22, 2011 and does not apply to applications submitted prior to that date.
For those JMIH 2013 participants traveling from a foreign country, please be advised that the US requires a visa for most international travelers, except travelers from Canada and countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program. To obtain the visa electronically, go to https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/esta.html. This is the text from the ESTA welcome page:
International travelers who are seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program are now subject to enhanced security requirements. All eligible travelers who wish to travel under the Visa Waiver Program must apply for authorization...
The application process is explained on the ESTA website listed above. Voluntary ESTA applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel to the United States, and Visa Waiver Program travelers are encouraged to apply for authorization as soon as they begin to plan a trip to the United States.
There are currently 36 countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program.
We look forward to seeing you in Albuquerque.
