British citizens visiting USA must have biometric passports

As of today (1 April 2016) all British citizens wishing to visit the UK must have a biometric passport. Failure to hold such a passport can lead to an inability to check-in or board flights. British passport holders whose passports are about to expire and who may wish to visit the US are therefore strongly advised to ensure that, when renewing their passports, they opt for the biometric passport.
