Visiting the USA after Iran (Visa Waiver Program)

Postby IanMck » Fri Dec 21, 2018 7:55 pm

Hello all,
A couple questions regarding the USA and the fact they are no longer offering the visa waiver and require you to get a visa if you have visited Iran...
First as a Canadian I don't require a visa to visit the USA is this what is meant by visa waiver?
Secondly, I have dual citizenship and am planning to visit Iran on my other passport (New Zealand), I plan to travel overland, but if Turkmenistan doesn't cooperate I may need to fly in, but on my NZ passport. So the question is if I travel on the NZ passport could I still enter he USA as a Canadian without a visa??
I feel it shouldn't be a problem hypothetically but was wondering if anyone has done it.

Canadians don't use the Visa Waiver Program (which is for EU/AU/JP/NZ and a few others), which excludes people who have been to Iran, but can enter the USA without a visa or any special program, so you'll be fine. Legally, it makes no difference for the Americans if you go to Iran with your Canadian or NZ passport, but not having evidence of having been to Iran in your passport might save you from some questions from unfriendly CBP officers.
