Do I Need a Visa to Visit the United States?

Most people who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States of America need a visa to visit or do business in the US. There are a few exceptions:

  • citizens of Bermuda, Canada, The Cayman Islands, The Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau, which have agreements with the US for visa-free travel for most citizens;
  • citizens of The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, who can travel to the US without a visa if they can provide valid police clearance
  • citizens of countries which participate in the Visa Waiver program.

If you do not fall into one of the above categories, you need a visa to travel to the USA. You also may require a visa if you are inadmissible to the US.
