Moving Forward on Visa Waiver Reform

Recorded on February 14, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Last year, Congress passed legislation to expand the Visa Waiver Program, which provides visitors of participating countries up to 90 days of visa-free travel for tourism or business.  The reform included provisions that increase security guarantees and immigration accountability, such as implementing an exit system to ensure that visitors do not overstay.  Once the federal government completes the implementation of these provisions, new countries may be added to the program, including South Korea, the Czech Republic and Poland.  Join us as our panelists provide us with an update on the progress toward Visa Waiver reform implementation.
