Britons travelling to the United States have been warned to check they have an e-passport, or risk being turned away.

 

New rules requiring US visitors to have passports with a biometric trip came into force on 1 April.

 

Tour operators have urged customers to check their passports.

 

Biometric passports are identifiable on British passports by the camera logo at the bottom of the front cover, and have an embedded electronic chip holding the carrier's facial details, in a bid to combat fraud and forgery.

 

Passports issued in the UK after October 2006 should have one of these logos on them and it means there's an embedded chip in it.

From the sounds of things this is only going to impact people with around 6 months left on their passport. Isn't the general advice that you shouldn't travel on a passport with such little time remaining anyway?

Do we put the same kind of obstacles in the way of Americans looking to visit this country ? If not, why not ?
