If I'm understanding correctly, the visa waiver is going away? Non citizens of countries formerly requiring a visa waiver will now have to register biological information 3 days before travel to the US, but then they won't have to register again for two years when they travel.

What do you guys think about this? Have you heard about it? Looks like August it will be required!


I'm a USC married to a french man who has been living in Canada for about 20 years.

March of 2005 -Met each other by chance in in Niagara Falls

April of 2005- after a ton of emails, arranged to meet in Montreal, now it's really getting exciting

May of 2005- tons of emails, he comes to visit Kentucky- we are so in love

In between visits to Toronto and KY, we go to Honduras, Montreal, Vancouver for vacations.

Sept 1, 2007 -Back and forth visits in between, IM and Skype, now we take the plunge and get married. We are so happy and my family and friends love him as much as I do!

March 25, 2008- Mailed out the I-130... finally!!!

April 4, 2008- Received the NOA1!!!

Sept. 2008 We went to Paris and the south of France (our 1st anniversary spent here) to visit my new family- with a quick peek at Spain. I love his mom and his son!

Just received a notice that we are moved to the CSC! I hear that is very good news! The date on the letter is Nov. 5.

My husband is coming for visits (otherwise I would go nuts- he is a free lancer and I have a straight job with limited vacation) so it will effect him, I'm sure. I just hope they don't turn him away since we are in the NOA1 stage!

Biographical, not biological. It's done online once every two years.

It doesn't mean the visa waivers will go away; it's simply a form you need to fill out a few days before you travel. Good thing is you can fill it in even if you have no concrete travel plans, so as soon as the website is up I plan on filling in my details, then I won't need to do it when I travel and I'll be covered should I need to travel on short notice.
