Visa Waiver Program

Reciprocal agreements between the United States and a number of countries whereby one may travel to other countries for up to 90 days without needing to purchase a tourist visa or other documentation. The Visa Waiver Program does not allow one to take a job in the United States (or another country), but one may conduct business for one's job in one's home country. Most European countries, along with Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea, are part of the Visa Waiver Program.
