Fake News About Visa Rule Changes

Reports of new countries being added to the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP) are false. No new countries have been added, and Lebanon is not currently part of the Visa Waiver Program. The U.S. embassy warns against opening any emails, opening links or emails, or responding to any email or announcement purporting to have information about changes or additions. The full list of countries whose citizens or nationals are currently eligible for the VWP, is available at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel.html.

Remember that the U.S. Department of State is committed to facilitating legitimate travel to the United States for qualified individuals, through a transparent and efficient visa application process. We encourage visa applicants to visit travel.state.gov for more information about U.S. visas.
