Visa Waiver Pilot Program expired on April 30, 2000 and on October 30, 2000 the Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act was signed into law (P.L. 106-396). Does anyone know what happened between April 30, 2000 and October 30, 2000? What was the policy for being admitted into the United States for countries that participated in the Visa Waiver Program?

    On October 30, 2000, the Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act was signed into

    law (P.L. 106-396). The statutory authority for the Visa Waiver Pilot Program had

    expired on April 30, 2000, but in the interim, the Commissioner of the former

    Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)18 exercised the Attorney General’s

    parole authority to extend the program temporarily.19 Besides making this program’s

    authorization permanent, the Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act included

    provisions designed to strengthen documentary and reporting requirements

    no person is ever certain get entry to, in spite of a visa. If a border agent thinks which you lied to get your visa, or that your intentions at the instant are not what you state, you would be denied get entry to. This has not something to do with using the visa waver software. It has each thing to do with YOU. Is there something shady or suspect approximately you or your loved ones? Do you have any ulterior reasons? Do you have any reason or motivation to apply your visa for a purpose for which it became into not meant? if so, you would be denied get entry to.
