U.S. Citizens to be Fingerprinted at Korean Airports

Korea Times, Posted: Dec 08, 2008

LOS ANGELES - U.S. citizens traveling to South Korea without visas under a new visa waiver program must be fingerprinted before being admitted into the country, reports the Korea Times. The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States for up to 90 days without a visa. In return, participating countries will allow U.S. citizens to visit their countries without a visa. Similarly, citizens of participating countries have to be approved to travel to the United States through a new online security screening system that will be mandatory for all visa-free visitors. It's unclear when the fingerprinting of U.S. citizens will begin, reports the newspaper. South Korean government officials told the newspaper that technical difficulties may impede the implementation of the new policy.
