The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens of 27 countries to visit the United States for up to 90 days without having to first obtain a visa. To be eligible, the purpose of the visit has to be for tourism or business. You also have to use a machine-readable passport that is valid for at least 6 months past your expected stay in the USA.
Generally speaking, VWP applicants admitted under the VWP may be readmitted to the United States after a departure to Canada or Mexico or adjacent islands for the balance of their original admission period.
This is provided they are otherwise admissible and meet all the conditions of the VWP, with the exception of arrival on a signatory carrier, in which case the inspecting officers have the discretion to grant the applicants entirely new periods of admission.
