America is a top international tourist destination. If you have always dreamed of visiting the USA then you should carefully plan your trip. This guide will look at important things to think about when you visit America, including visas, flights and hotels.

Deciding Where to Go

The first thing to consider is where in America you are going to visit, America is a large country with lots to offer. Whether you want to visit Florida, New York, LA, or somewhere else will depend on the type of holiday you are looking for. Whether you want a gambling holiday for adults, or a kids friendly Disney holiday. Talk to a travel agent, or look online for more advice about where to visit in America.


To visit America with a UK passport you need a visa. It’s important to allow plenty of time to apply for the visa to avoid any disappointment. The only exception would be if you have dual nationality and possess an American passport. Applying for a US tourist visa is straightforward and simple. An appointment can be booked online to submit the visa application at either the London, or Belfast embassy. A visa currently costs $160 and a recent passport photo and relevant documents will be required.
