Britons travelling to the US will be fingerprinted and photographed before entered the country.

The move affects citizens of 27 countries -- including close allies Britain, Japan and Australia -- who had been allowed to travel within the United States without a visa for up to 90 days.

Under changes that will take effect by September 30, they will be fingerprinted and photographed when they enter through any of 115 international airports and 14 seaports.

Asa Hutchinson, the Homeland Security Department's border and transportation under-secretary, was to hold a news conference to discuss the changes to the US-VISIT programme.

Members of Congress were briefed about the move.

"Britons travelling to the US will be fingerprinted and photographed before entered the country."
Well, you are entering Big Brother or Big Sister country.
You are assumed guilty until proven innocent.
It used to be the other way round.
...
Well, I won't travel there for the next time!
