What does this U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Legal Wizard [Australia] do?

This innovative Legal Wizard includes Embedded Lawyer-Logic designed to guide you as the holder of an eligible Australian e-passport (or e-Passport from any other U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Program [VWP] member country) to understand whether depending on:

⚖️ The primary purpose for your intended travel; and

⚖️ The other requirements of the U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Program.

⭐️ You may qualify to travel to the U.S. without a visa for 90 days of less.

❌ Permanent residents of Visa Waiver Program countries DO NOT qualify for the Visa Waiver Program unless they are also Citizens of VWP countries.

Assumptions

This Legal Wizard assumes you have an eligible Australian e-Passport that is valid for your intended period of stay~ in the U.S. (or e-Passport from any other VWP member country), have not yet applied for a U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver or a U.S. Visa, and are legally eligible for admission to the United States under section 212 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

~ Citizens of Australia are exempt from the otherwise applicable minimum 6-month passport validity rule which normally means that your passport must be valid for 6 months after your intended date of departure from the U.S.

Therefore, due to this special exemption, your Australian e-Passport is only required to be valid for your intended period of stay in the U.S.

James has been great to work with. I called him on a Monday and by Tuesday he had a formal [19-Page] Concerns Notice sent to a person defaming me and my business. He stayed in touch throughout the day, kept me updated regularly and was diligent to ensure we were exercising all of my rights under the law. Thanks, James!

We needed a really good lawyer and after doing our research we decided to contact Blue Ocean Law Group. James runs a very efficient service and has extensive knowledge of Defamation Law. Nothing was a problem. James would follow up with me regarding issues that had arisen. He dealt with each issue in a professional and ethical manner. James would explain every detail on the phone and the process could not have been easier!

Blue Ocean Law Group's website has plenty of information in easy, layman's language that explains how Defamation Law works in Australia and from there, it was really easy to book an appointment online. James is a thoroughly professional Lawyer and it was a pleasure dealing with him. Keep up the good work, James! Cheers! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

(Translated by Google) Lawyer James Ford was the best. He assisted me all the way through a dispute with a tenant who tried his best to extort money from the landlord due to a conflict with another tenant. James is reliable in his profession amongst lawyers in this field ... James patiently guided me, a landlord whose English is my second language, throughout the whole process ... It was because of his command that my case was turned from a disadvantage to an advantage. His charges are also very reasonable. So if you are a landlord I would highly recommend 'James Ford' to you.

Our case was unique. My client was based in Thailand and we needed a lawyer in Australia. After searching several firms in NSW we found Blue Ocean Law Group. James was very helpful. He explained the matter in detail via emails and on several occasions over the phone to us in Thailand. The resources on the firm's website were also very helpful in providing additional information for us. I would highly recommend James and will use him again if we need a lawyer in Australia.
