Hi there :-)
I'll be travelling to the USA from the UK in January 2015. But I've got myself rather confused with visas.. Would I just need to get a visa wavier? If so do I obtain it from the ESTA website? I've seen a few websites when I Google visa waivers, so I've no idea what I'm doing. The last time I went to the USA was with school back in 2005 and they sorted most of this out, and all I had to do was fill out the green card.
Also, my passport is machine readable (in that it has the two lines of >>> and my details), but it doesn't have a chip.. will this be ok?
