Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from the USA.

Canadian passport holders do not require a visa to enter America, but must carry their passport on them. British, Australian and New Zealand passport holders do not require a visa to enter the USA for up to 90 days under the Visa Waiver Program. These nationalities require machine-readable passports valid for the length of their stay, and must have proof of return travel. To travel under the Visa Waiver Program, passengers must obtain authorisation from the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) by filling out a form at least 72 hours prior to arrival. Note: There is a fee of US$14 and receiving authorisation from ESTA does not guarantee entry to the USA.
