Travellers to US will be denied boarding without e-authorisation


www.sott.net

The US Customs and Border Protection is to make it mandatory from that date for all passengers heading to the country under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) to have received authorisation under its Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). The requirement also applies to those in transit through the US.

The system requires travellers to supply personal information including name, date of birth, and passport information, as well as travel information such as the flight number and destination address in the United States. The traveller will also be required to answer VWP eligibility yes

Is this means of denying people freedom a necessary evil for protection from terrorist activity, or will it ultimately lead to further discrimination by authorities?

Personally I have not heard of the Visa Waiver Program or the Electronic System for Travel Authorization. Can anyone shed some light?

Isn't this similar to the forms you have to fill out (usually on the plane) before landing in another country? (US to Mexico as an example...)

This sounds as if it's now pre-arranged and automated, rather than having to have the airlines handle it... if this is the case, I don't have a problem with streamlining the process and making it more efficient.

Am I interpreting this incorrectly?

The Visa Waver Program is for the British (and others I would assume but I can't speak from personal experience) to come over to the States for up to 90 days without having to apply for a Visa. You fill out a card on the plane before landing with Passport details and where you will be stopping etc.
