Citizens of seven more countries will be eligible to travel to the United States for business or tourism on a Visa Waiver program (VWP).
President Bush discussed the expansion of the visa waiver program to seven new countries, "I'm pleased to stand with the representatives of seven countries -- the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, and South Korea -- that have met the requirements to be admitted to the United States Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Soon the citizens of these nations will be able to travel to the United States for business or tourism without a visa."
These countries were added to the list of U.S. "visa waiver" program of friendly nations as they agreed to share information about threats to the people of America.
The new addition of the Visa Waiver countries was announced by the U.S. President George W. Bush in the White House Rose Garden on Friday.
