Hey
Just booked a round the world ticket with the first leg flying from London into Lima, via Miami. However I've heard it mentioned that I'd need a visa for the USA even though its only a transit and I'm only goning to be there for an hour or so. Anyone know what the deal is?

If you're not a citizen of one of the countries for which there is a visa waiver program, yes, you do need a visa. Ridiculous, isn't it? ;)

Yeah, the UK is part of the programme, but your passport has to meet certain requirements as well. Read more here
