U. S. Citizens

All citizens of the United States must present a valid U.S. passport to enter Wales, a member of the United Kingdom. This passport must be valid for a minimum of six months from the date on which you plan to enter Wales. Six months is the maximum amount of time a U.S. citizen may remain in the U.K without a visa.
