I know some of you visit on a regular basis, and this caught my eye because of zorac, naturally. Apparently our paranoid lovely government has gone through with the plan to photograph and fingerprint visitors from allied countries. It says this plan will "take effect by September 30th," so I don't know if that means you could have it happen to you sooner than that. You have no choice in the matter (which I have decidedly mixed feelings about, I must say), but at least you know that it'll happen and to expect longer wait times in Immigration at the airport. The joy.
Here's the list of countries: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
