DHS Signs Visa Waiver Program Interim Declaration with Romania

On 11/3/08 DHS announced that Secretary Chertoff signed a Visa Waiver Program (VWP) declaration with Romanian Ambassador Adrian Vierita. The declaration outlines security measures required for Romania’s possible designation as a VWP member.

Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is a program of the United States of America which allows citizens of specific countries to travel to the US for tourism or business for up to 90 days without having to obtain a visa. All countries participating in the program are high-income economies with a high HDI and most are regarded as developed countries. This will be a big step for Romania if accepted into the program.
