GUAM VISA WAIVER

Korean passport holders, Visa Waiver Program (VWP) eligible travelers and passport holders from the below listed countries, may seek entry into Guam for business or pleasure only for 15 days or less if they carry a passport valid for at least six months past date of Guam entry, travel on a registered carrier, have a round-trip or onward ticket in their possession when arriving in Guam, and are otherwise eligible for U.S. entry. A Guam visa waiver traveler cannot extend, adjust or change his/her status while in the U.S., including Guam, and cannot travel from Guam to another destination in the U.S. If a Guam Visa Waiver traveler wishes to engage in any activity that is not otherwise allowed using a visitor (B1/B2) visa, that traveler must qualify for the appropriate visa.



The following passport holders and travelers under the VWP may seek entry into Guam under the Guam Visa Waiver:

Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Taiwan (residents thereof who begin their travel in Taiwan and who travel on direct flights from Taiwan to Guam without an intermediate layover or stop except for stops in a U.S. territory enroute), the U.K. (British National Overseas, British Dependent Territory passports), Vanuatu and Western Samoa.

Please note that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (www.uscis.gov) immigration inspectors determine admission into, length of stay and conditions of stay in, the U.S. at a port of entry. We play no role in the entry process.

 As of May 1, German temporary/emergency passports will no longer be valid for travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). German regular, official, and diplomatic passports remain valid for VWP travel, per current VWP passport requirements.  Holders of German temporary or emergency passports that intend to travel to or through the United States must either obtain regular German passports for VWP travel or apply for U.S. visas to travel to the United States.  (see travel.state.gov or DHS' website for additional details)

As announced by Department of Homeland Security in June, passports issued on or after October 26, 2005, to VWP citizens must include a digital photo in order to be valid for VWP travel to the U.S. Travelers whose passports do not meet this biometric requirement will need to obtain a valid U.S. visa for admission into the United States. VWP travelers with machine-readable passports issued before October 26, 2005 do not need to obtain new passports or visas in order to travel to the U.S. more

Machine-readable passport (MRP) holders from one of the following countries may seek entry to the U.S. for business or pleasure for up to 90 days without a visa if they travel on a registered carrier, have a round-trip or onward ticket in their possession when arriving in the U.S., and are otherwise eligible for U.S. entry. A U.S. visa waiver traveler cannot extend, adjust or change his/her status while in the U.S. If a U.S. visa waiver traveler wishes to engage in any activity that is not otherwise allowed using a visitor (B1/B2) visa, that traveler must qualify for the appropriate visa.
