When I did the QM2 back from New York I didn't need to get a Visa. The airline provided a form to be completed which was handed into the immigration stations on entry. If you enter the US by sea then the cruise line should supply this form for you to complete. The only real exceptions are if you have to declare any criminal convictions or anything like tha.

Entering NY on a cruise ship is the same as entering on a plane - you get the visa waiver form to complete.

All UK passport holders can enter the US under the Visa waiver programme. You have to answer a series of questions and provided that you can say no to all of them, then you don't need to apply for a Visa. If you cant answer alll the questions in this way then you do need to apply for a Visa.The vast majority of UK citizens qualify for the Visa Waiver programme. if you are in any doubt, check the US Consulate website. I can confirm that like the airlines, the ship will provide you with both the Visa Waiver form (one to be completed by each passenger) and a US Immigration Form (one to be completed by each family.

We are booked to travel from Dubai 21.3.09 to Southhampton . I have a Fiji Passport and my wife ARUNA PRASAD NAGIN has Australian paasport. Please advise if wer need Oman Visa and if so where can we get it. I have read somewhere: "Common Visa Facility with the Emirate of Dubai: Travellers bearing an entrance visa from the Emirate of Dubai are not required to obtain a separate visa for the Sultanate of Oman. The Entry stamp or Visa for Dubai is recognized as an entry visa to Oman also." Is this correct ? Hemendra Nagin.
