The article discusses the move of the U.S. government to approve the Visa Waiver Program to help improve the economy of Las Vegas, Nevada. The program, which is part of an effort to reverse the decline of overseas visitation to the country as a result of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, expands that number of nationalities who could visit the U.S. without getting a visa first. It is said that the addition of South Korea to the program will help bring $120 million in spending annually in Las Vegas.
