What are the visa and passport requirements if travelling to the USA?

Anyone travelling to the USA must hold ESTA authorisation (submitted via https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/). Please visit this website for up to date requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have all the necessary valid and undamaged documentation including visas to meet the immigration authorities' requirements of your destination country. On 18 December 2015, the US Congress passed a Bill updating the requirements for the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP); under the new rules, with effect from 1 April 2016 all travellers wishing to enter the US under the VWP will need to hold a passport with an integrated chip. As Jet2.com is strictly a point to point airline this means that, even if the destination country of your Jet2.com flight permits you to transit without a visa, you will have to pass through Immigration of that country and will therefore need the appropriate visa. Please be aware that we will not be liable for any consequences of your failure to arrive without the correct documentation and any fines, penalties or other expenditures incurred shall be paid by or charged to you.
