Public Description:  

S. 342, Secure Travel and Counterterrorism Partnership Act, would have required DHS to establish a pilot program to expand the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) (which now allows citizens of 27 countries to travel to the United States for up to 90 days without a visa, and has provided easy entry for terrorists and created a black market for stolen or forged passports). It would have added five more countries to the program, and would have allowed such a country's participation in the VWP for three years, with one two-year extension possible.
