All arriving visitors from Ebola affected areas in West Africa such as Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, must arrive at one of the 5 major U.S. International airports (JFK New York, Washington Dulles, Chicago O’Hare, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Georgia, and Newark Liberty New Jersey) in order to undergo CDC approved health screening.

Due to the closeness of the African regions to the United Kingdom, the US Visa Waiver Program (VWP) which allows for most British Citizen passport holders to visit the US for up to 90 days without a visa. However, all travelers who will be arriving by air or sea transportation must get an authorization via the available Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), before the beginning of their travel.

Arriving travelers by means of land transportation from neighboring countries Mexico and Canada with approved entry to the United Sates under the existing Visa Waiver Program, do not need to complete an ESTA. Even though, this may change later, so check before the start of travel, because you do not want to get to the US borders and to be told you are not authorized to the enter the US, due to changes in the ESTA.

The Visa Waiver Program is not available to those who are British nationals and are passport holders with 12 months extension due to exceptional measures, which was put in place in middle of 2014. Those individual that are in such situations will need to apply for a visa from a US Embassy or Consulate.

Due to other unexpected travel situations which may arise during travel on direct flight to the US, be sure to plan your journey with extra time for extended airport security screenings and luggage checks at departing and arriving airports. See the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for any situation changes in travel at your planned destination.
