Tourist Visa and Visa Waiver Program

Jump to last reply

My wife & I want to visit her sister in Oklahoma later this year but I'm a bit concerned that
we might have a problem & be refused entry.

My wife has a visitor visa issued in 1985 in an old passport (expired1993). This is stamped "multiple" & "indefinitely". Can she use this, along with her current passport, or does she have to have the visa entered in to it for the visa to be accepted at immigration?

We have in recent years gone to the US from the UK under the visa waiver program under the I-94w form.
We have done the ESTA thing and been accepted but are not sure whether the I-94w is still used as there were reports of it being phased out.

On 1 of our last trips via Chicago for some reason the I-94w was not handed in on the return journey for some reason and subsequently became lost. the last 2 trips were in 1993 & 1996. I think the I-94w was lost on the '93 one but can't be sure. If it was this one we didn't have any entry problem at Chicago in '96.

Any ideas if we're likely to be denied entry if we go to the US later this year, or should I get a full visa and my wife rely on her current visa?
