Notice: Visa Changes for the USA.

On March 6 March 2017, President Trump signed a revised Executive Order to reintroduce a travel ban that was previously blocked by the Federal Court.

As a result, a number of changes have been made to the entry requirements for the USA.  One of the changes includes the removal of Iraq from the list of countries whose citizens were banned from entering the USA.  

Additionally, if you are a citizen of Australia, New Zealand, the UK or any visa waiver country, you are still required to hold a valid ESTA and your entry to the USA is not restricted.

Please refer to the DFAT webpage for the latest visa information.
