I would guess your home office would require at least 9 months notice if it takes 6 month for passport

"All British travellers arriving in the United States will be fingerprinted and digitally photographed from Thursday."

Look up the US-VISIT scheme.

Of course the information will be kept to "help" frequent travellers!!!

And even if you trust the US government I most certainly don't trust ours - I am quite sure any info recorded will soon end up on numerous databases and we all know how secure they can be.......

Well done Codders. That is new news.. My friend is also a property owner and holder of a permenant business visa so perhaps he side stepped that stuff.
he also travels BA 1 st. class so ???. I am sure that you are aware that the US public are outraged over the decades of poor immigration control by the US government. The recent terrorist incidents in the UK. make UK folks a "high priority". Not sure I can blame them for that. I left the UK in 1982 because the government started screwing up back in the 1960's. Seems to have gone downhill since then. If you want to whine about "special relationships" etc. then perhaps you should square up you own countrie,s act first. In conclusion "men live in the US" "Whimps live in the UK" Winston would have had you all shot.
Now someone is going to give me a earful.

I'm going to hold out a little longer while the $ Canadian : $ US ratio gets a little higher, then buy a nice, mid-sized state. Colorado or Oregon would do just fine.

We have a town in British Columbia called 'Bountiful' which is also a polygamist magnet.

My mother snowbirds in Mesa. I visted her down there a couple of years ago and enjoyed Arizona tremendously.

Glad you enjoyed AZ. However, did you know that Mesa is the Morman capital of AZ. We have a saying: a virgin is a 10year old living in Mesa that can run faster than her 11year old brother.

Bad things happen when the family tree has no branches. There seems to be a hidden north-south corridor that these elders..er.. creeps to duck into when on the lam from the authorities.
