However, it should be noted that people who are eligible for the VWP may still want to apply for a visa if they wish to remain for a longer period of time or participate in activities not permitted under this program.

The following include all 35 countries that currently participate in the VWP:

Andorra Iceland Norway
Australia Ireland Portugal
Austria Italy San Marino
Belgium Japan Singapore
