Greece to Participate in Visa Waiver Program

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently added Greece to the list of countries authorized to participate in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Under the Visa Waiver Program, citizens and eligible nationals of participating countries may apply for admission to the United States at U.S. ports of entry as visitors for business or pleasure for a period of ninety days or less without first obtaining a nonimmigrant visa, provided that they are otherwise eligible for admission.
