Hmmmm, spotted this when reading about the latest US immigration rules.
BBC News from 3 days ago:
“People on the visa waiver scheme – such as tourists from much of Europe, Japan and Australia – are not yet affected…”
So that means I won’t need to be fingerprinted as I hold a British passport. Good.
But, in the BBC News today:
“British travellers holding a “machine-readable” passport – issued in Britain since November 1991 – can still travel to the US without a visa for the 10-year lifetime of their document.
They will then have their fingerprints and photographs taken on arrival in the US.”
So now I do get fingerprinted after all, they sneaked that one in didn’t they.
Or did I misunderstand something there?
Also, read Chip-shop owner mistaken for terrorist for what might happen to you if you share a name with a terrorist.
Glad my name isn’t Carlos T Jackal then.
