The British operator refused to answer this basic question, saying she did not know and referring me to an embassy '0891' number. At peak rate, 48p per minute, I listened to a lengthy introduction before learning a visa was not required.
Quite frankly, I am outraged that my embassy would charge for this basic visa information. That should be funded by American taxpayers in the name of promoting international relations. May I suggest that police constables now charge for answering the questions of American tourists? You'd make millions.
