Walton Brown statement
House: warning over visas to visit US
Non-Bermudians holding British Overseas Territories Citizen passports need a visa to visit the United States, Walton Brown warned today.
The Minister of Home Affairs told the House of Assembly the issue was brought to light after the spouse of a Bermudian was denied entry to the US.
He said: “There are persons who are not Bermudian but who possess BOTC status because they were born in Bermuda before 1983 or have been naturalised as BOTC citizens.”
Mr Brown said that those holding BOTC passports that do not include the observation “Holder is registered as a Bermudian” will not be allowed to enter the US without a visa.
He added: “Additionally, it should be noted that Bermudians travelling with BOTC passports that are not displaying the mentioned observation will not be eligible for entry to the US under the visa-exempt classification.”
