Foreign governments and business groups are worried that a new US law designed to strengthen border security will impose strict new visa requirements and travel delays on visitors to the US.
The Border Security Act, which was signed by President George W. Bush on Tuesday, requires US visas, passports and other travel documents issued after Oct-ober 2004 to be fraud- and tamper-resistant and to contain so-called biometric data.
