Foreign travelers to the United States for short visits, for example tourism, vacation, visiting family and friends, or medical treatment, need visitor visas unless they qualify for entry under the Visa Waiver Program.

Most citizens of participating countries may travel to the United States for short visits without a visa through the Visa Waiver Program.
