A citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must usually obtain a visa.
Travelers coming to the U.S. for tourism or business for 90 days or less from qualified countries may be eligible to visit the U.S. without a visa if they meet the visa waiver program requirements. Additionally, visa-free travel is possible for some nationals of Canada and Bermuda under certain circumstances.
Questions are best directed to the appropriate embassy or consulate in your country of residence, but some help may be obtained from Chris Marks.
