You will have to check Visa status individually. If you can travel to USA without one, hey presto. If you do need one please speak up so it can be organised and invites requested if needed. I think you can just say it's for holiday though.

When does the Visa waiver scheme expire? I know it's sometime soon, and when it does we'll all need to get visas! Well except Tim of course.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS


Most British Citizen passport holders do not need a visa to visit the US on business, pleasure or in transit if they intend to stay in the US for less than 90 days and as long as they have a Machine Readable Passport. This is called the Visa Waiver Programme, and more information on this is available on the US Embassy website (details at the end of this section). The requirement to have a machine readable passport was introduced on 26 October 2004.
 
If you are unsure whether you are eligible to travel to the USA without a visa, the following Questions and Answers may be helpful.
 
Is my passport machine readable?
 
If your passport is machine-readable it will have at the foot of the personal information page (at the back of the passport) 2 lines of text as letters, numbers and chevrons (>>>).If there are no lines of text, then the passport is not machine-readable and you need a visa. The personal information page should also describe your nationality status as, "British Citizen".
 
Why might I need a visa?
 
There are reasons why a British traveller will need a visa. These include one or more of the following: (Note: this list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure, or if you think that your situation falls into any of the following categories, you should consult the US Embassy about whether you need to apply for a visa ñ you must do this well in advance of any plans to travel to the US.)
The personal information page of your passport does not describe you as a "British Citizen", but instead says "British Subject", "British National (Overseas)", "British Overseas Territories Citizen", "British Dependent Territories Citizen", "British Protected Person" or "British Overseas Citizen"
You intend to stay longer than 90 days
You have a passport that is not machine readable
You intend to travel to the US for a reason other than business, pleasure or transit
You have been arrested, even if not convicted
You have a criminal record
You have a serious, communicable disease (including HIV)
You are HIV Positive
You have been refused entry to the US on a previous occasion
You have been deported from the US
You have previously overstayed the 90 days permitted under the Visa Waiver Programme (ie travel without a visa)
You are a child included on your parent's passport
In all of these cases, you need to apply for a visa, or seek further information from the US Embassy Visa Information Service on 09042 450100 ñ (calls are charged at £1.20 a minute) or: www.usembassy.org.u k
 
On 15 June, the US Department of Homeland Security announced a one-year extension of its Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) to 26 October 2006.
 
VWP countries, including the UK, are required to have a biometric passport issuing system in place by 26 October 2006, in order to continue as members of the Programme and benefit from visa free travel to the US after that date. Biometric passports will contain data about the holderís face, and may also contain other unique personal information such as fingerprints and iris details.
 
The US also announced a requirement that all new passports issued on or after 26 October 2005, must contain a digital photo image to enable the holder to travel to the USA visa free.
 
This means that in order to travel under the VWP:
If you are holding a British Citizen passport, you can enter the US with a machine-readable passport, with or without a digital photo image (since 2003 all UK passports have been issued with digital photographs).
From 26 October 2006, all passports issued on or after that date will have to include biometric data. The UK is on course to meet this deadline.
UK Passports

You are advised to check the remaining validity of your passport as soon as you plan to travel to the US. Although the US and the UK have an agreement that allows people travelling from one country to the other to enter with a passport that only has six months validity or less, you should nevertheless try to renew your passport beforehand. This is in case your departure from the US is delayed for any reason; if you wish to make side visits to other countries; or if you have further travel plans immediately after your visit to the US.
 
Transit Without Visa (TWOV) and International to International (ITI) transit programmes.
 
These programmes were suspended on 2 August 2003. Those travellers who are passing through the United States ëin transití but are not eligible for the Visa Waiver Programme must obtain a visa prior to travel.

Isn't the World Cup after October 26th though? That means we'll all need to have biometric passports or get visas.

I think it means if your passport is issused after this date it must be biometric or you will need a VISA.
