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.
