Re: New Entry to US Rules

There's a new aspect to this story: the US travel tax. http://www.spiegel.de/international/eur … 63,00.html

We'll be visiting the US during the upcoming holidays and my ESTA will still be valid. However, whenever we decide to visit the US after that I'll have to shell out $14.
