Travel Promotion Act will Charge $14 for Foreign Travelers entering the US

Travel Promotion Act will Charge $14 for Foreign Travelers entering the US

Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - Starting on September 15th, the Travel Promotion Act of 2009 will require international travelers coming from 36 different countries to pay a $14 entry fee to visit the United States. The fee is for those international tourists that plan to stay fewer than 90 days. The ten-dollar portion of the fee will help fund tourism in the United States and the remaining four-dollars will help pay for registration costs for the Electronic System for Travel Authorization which is handled by the US Customs Border and Border Protection. The fee is a one time charge that will cover the visitor for a two year time period. So if they travel often, they won't have to keep paying every time they visit.

The bill was introduced because of a decline in visitors coming to the United States. The law makers felt that increased advertising for tourism paid for by the collected funds will help to improve the industry. The Travel Promotion Act was signed into law by President Obama on March 4, 2010.

The countries that are involved in this Travel Promotion Act fee are mostly from European countries, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
