The Home Secretary made a statement on the electronic visa waiver (EVW) scheme on 9 December 2013 (HC Deb, 9 December 2013, c4WS).

We keep the UK’s visa regime including the EVW scheme under constant review and in light of a range of border security factors which are balanced against the costs of delivery as well as the benefits to the UK’s prosperity and bilateral relations.
