wouterrr has indicated that this thread is about Peru

My brother has a girlfriend from Peru. She wants to come over to the Netherlands. The ticket is already booked and she has to change flights at Miami in the USA (she has to wait 3 hours for the connecting flight to Amsterdam). Is it true that she (girl with Peruvian nationality) now needs a (transit) visa for the USA for this 3 hours she stays at Miama airport? Can someone shed some light on this. Thanks a lot.

Yes it is true
even more
we, the peruvians, dont have access to transits visa for the usa, she has to get an turist or business visa, full visa.
cost are around 150us$. and there is too much people that pay and didnt get the visa
