US immigration 'worst in the world'

From Times Online, October 25, 2007, Tom Chesshyre;

"Entry requirements in the United States are the "worst in the world" and visa rules are "cumbersome", causing tourists to steer clear of America, according to a leading figure in US travel and tourism.

Jonathan Tisch, chairman of the influential Travel Business Round Table in the US, which represents travel orangisations in America, told Times Online Travel that urgent action is required to incease visitors to the United States, as tourism numbers do not proportionately match up to other countries.

He is calling on immigration officials at airports to be more polite, for fewer visa restrictions and for a nationwide tourist board to promote tourism - no such organisation exists at present as each state organises its own tourist publicity.

Tisch, who is visiting London to watch the Miami Dolphins play the New York Giants, which his family half owns, at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, believes that potential visitors consider trips to the America to be "problematic"...".
