Electronic Passport

 

If you intend visiting America please check that your passport is not the old-style non-biometric one, as you will no longer be able to enter the country under its Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) which previously allowed Britons to enter without a visa. Travellers have been caught out as the new rules came into effect 1st April and some have been turned away at airports.

The law is designed to discourage large groups of lager louts becoming a nuisance but will impact on all as police find it difficult to differentiate between drinks.
