Visa Waiver Program

Created in 1986, the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is essential to both facilitating inbound travel to the United States and protecting the homeland because it requires pre-screening of pre-approved visa-free travelers. Enhanced cooperation from participating countries with whom the U.S. holds the best law-enforcement and security relationships is a requirement of participation in VWP. The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is authorized to designate countries eligible to participate in the VWP, based on a determination that the country meets the applicable requirements. The U.S. government supports expansion to countries able to meet the statutory standards and are willing and able to enter into a closer partnership with the United States.
