NBTA applauds the addition of Greece to the U.S. Visa Waiver Program

The National Business Travel Association (NBTA) applauded the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement about the designation of Greece as a member of the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP), establishing a partnership that will enhance security standards and facilitate the efficient travel into the United States for Greek citizens.
NBTA Executive Director & COO Michael W. McCormick said, “Corporations in both Greece and the United States can rejoice in Greece’s acceptance into the U.S. Visa Waiver Program. Visa-free travel is imperative to facilitate effective international travel, enabling the free flow of commerce and economic growth.”

NBTA has been a long-time supporter of the VWP, urging the inclusion of Greece since talks between the two countries began more than two years ago. With members in more than 30 nations and regional affiliates based in Australia and New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, Europe, and Mexico, NBTA understands the importance of hassle-free business travel to the United States for foreign travelers. 
McCormick added, “Forming information-sharing partnerships with foreign nations is paramount to homeland security and traveler safety. We applaud DHS for enhancing this vital risk management program and look forward to the addition of more counties in the near future.”
