Irish passport holders and the United States Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program enables most citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without first obtaining a visa.

From 1 April 2016, all Irish passport holders who are able to travel to the United States via the Visa Waiver Program must have a valid electronic passport.
