Since 2015, all Bermudian passports are printed in the United Kingdom, rather than Bermuda.
British Overseas Territories citizens with a connection to Bermuda can enter the United States visa-free under most circumstances. To qualify, they must present a Bermudian passport which fulfils the following criteria:
- The front cover has printed on it "Government of Bermuda"
- The holder's nationality must be stated as either "British Overseas Territories Citizen" or "British Dependent Territories Citizen"
- The passport must contain one of the following endorsement stamps: "Holder is registered as a Bermudian", "Holder Possesses Bermudian Status" or "Holder is deemed to possess Bermudian status"
Alternatively, if Bermudians use their British Citizen passports, when entering the US on the Visa Waiver Program, they can only stay visa-free for up to 90 days and must obtain pre-arrival online authorisation (at a fee of US$14).
