ATTENTION: ALl tourist who are about to fly into the United Stated are from January 2009 on obligated to do a pre-online registration latest 72h before their planned arrival!!! I hope Julian and Dan, who started today on their trip to Boston (and are the first traveler there from our action) did know that!!!

Select this option if: = This will work for most of us I assume....

You are a citizen or eligible national of a Visa Waiver Program country. (Andorra, France, Luxembourg, Singapore, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Monaco, Slovenia, Estonia, Australia, Iceland, Netherlands, Spain, Hungary, Belgium, Ireland, New Zealand, Sweden, Latvia, Brunei, Italy, Norway, Switzerland, Lithuania, Denmark, Japan, Portugal, United Kingdom, Slovakia, Finland, Liechtenstein, San Marino, Republic of Malta, South Korea)

You are currently not in possession of a visitor's visa.

Your travel is for 90 days or less.

You plan to travel to the United States for business or pleasure.

As you will fit all those requirements, I think it is just a mandatory click and there you go... BUT PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!

I think it is a shame that countries like Poland and especially GREECE arent on that list??? WHAT THE FUCK??? Greece is a member of the EWR/EU since 1981 and its citizen have less right than the proud people of Malta, Andorra or Brunei???

I did the online registration now and it was very simple and seems kind of unnecessary...
anyway... permission granted.
