Here’s the next installment in our series of blog posts about consular team members’ experiences in the United States.

Approval to travel under ESTA will eventually eliminate the requirement that the traveler complete the I-94W form.  We suggest you check with your airline or shipping company as they are the ones who issue the I-94W to travelers. Read moreRead more
