Fuckem! Haven't been allowed in for years now after committing a crime of 'moral turpitude'.

**** it,I'm all for reciprocal arrangements between the good ol' US of A and the UK,so why don't we just do the same,and charge them for coming to visit us.

And so they don't feel left out we'll charge them,allowing for fluctuations in the exchange rate,mmmm,I know £14,that sounds about right,to be donated to promote British tourism,of course.......... ;-)

I wonder how many tourists = New Trident system? :)

I'm of to the states at the end of the year , just been and done the ESTA thingy as its free until 8th Sept.
And I believe it lasts up to 2 years(?) so a worthwhile investment if you're planning a future trip to the US. Have to do mine thanks for reminding me.

Just loking after their own ............ wish we would do the same.
Agree'd, however we should do something similar but charge double as the country needs the funds,

see how long the so called special relationship would last, but then the gvt is still chasing the US for fines in the capital which they have no intention of paying, double standards

Have heard of it before, but still googled it!

From Wiki:
Moral turpitude is a legal concept in the United States that refers to "conduct that is considered contrary to community standards of justice, honesty or good morals."[1]
The concept of moral turpitude escapes precise definition but has been described as an "act of baseness, vileness or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellowmen, or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man."
I am even more intregued about the bold bit, S_F! :biggrin:

A great aunt of mine was denied access to the Colony in the late 1920's on a moral turpitude charge. She was married to an Earl, and went on an unaccompanied trip abroad with another Earl, to whom she wasn't married. It even made Time magazine!

Its a great way to **** their economy even more in harsh times :D

In a time when countries are considering their visa charges, and airports are competing with each other, this is a real own goal. The U.S. travel experience is hostile (an understatement) towards travellers, and this will only make it more unpleasant.

I drive into the land of the septic a few times each year, they charge me six dollars every trip, have been doing it for years, suprised it hs taken them so long to start charging air travellers, the six dollar fee only gives one six weeks. Must say i have yet to meet a decent customs bod on their side, very paranoid and insulated if you get my drift.

yeah that's what I say....having just went to Brazil, who don't charge UK passport holders a cent but charge US passports 112 dollars, it's a good policy to reciprocate...i.e. those countries that do not charge us, we allow in for free the others...like USA and Australia etc...charge them exactly the same amount..........
