Confused about US visa applications
September 1, 2012 8:36 AM Subscribe
I live in the States. A friend of mine may visit for just a couple weeks, but we're confused about visa issues. He's Italian and has an Italian(EU?) passport; he lives in Guatemala. It looks like Italy is included under the Visa waiver program and we need to apply and pay for travel authorization on CBp.gov. My questions:
1. You're supposed to pay for the application to the visa waiver program with a credit card. Friend doesn't have a credit card. Can I just use mine, or will this raise red flags? Any other options you can think of?
2. Friend visited Arizona 4 years ago via car (crossed border at Mexico) and says he did not "give back the green paper visa at the border when I left the country." is this a problem?
Also, if you have any general advice about the process, I'd love to hear it.
