Re: My $4,500 US B-2 Visa Saga - a cautionary tale
I am just a stupid Australian but I can work out the USA entry requirements. Why cant you?
From what I can understand of the OP’s account below he had researched and thought he had ’worked out’ the entry requirements, but yeah he got caught out.
The United States code does not permit travel under the "visa waver" program to the United States on a private sailboat. You must arrive on an "approved carrier" which means a commercial flight. Andy could have applied for an ESTA, flown to Miami for about $150 and stayed in a hotel while I brought Reboot back to the United States.
I did my Internet research. It said that Andy needed a B-2 visitors visa for entry on Reboot.
Its not that hard!
From one stupid Aussie to another, sometimes you can come across as a rude (expletive deleted) mate.
