 From now on travellers to the USA have to either get a visa
or use a US Government website to get advance approval.  Just coming from a
"visa waiver country" is no longer good enough.

The information site is:
         http://www.cbp.gov/esta

... which links to the actual (secure) process site:
         https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/

Note that a web search of ESTA may lead you to something like "esta.us"
which looks official, but is really a private company trying to charge
you money for a service that is the same as the free
government-provided service.

Having just tried out the system, I propose that we no longer have FtFs in  
the USA.

Steven
