United States
I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

As far as I'm aware, the October 2005 deadline refers to needing a digital photo on your passport to enter the US. Although older passports without them will still be allowed, it just means that new ones will need them. I have a 10 year passport that has another 5 or 6 years on it and that should be ok, it only means that newly issued passports need to conform to US requirements otherwise you will need to get a visa. The US also has the October 2006 deadline for newly issued foreign passports to contain biometric data, or again you need to obtain a visa.

Anyone else know if that's right?! (And I'm not intending to start an arguement on whether this is a good/moral idea or a US led conspiracy - I'd just like to be aware of the facts!)
