British travelers will no longer need a visa to visit the United States by next year, officials in both countries said. The decision soothes a long-standing British irritation, since Britain does not require U.S. visitors to have similar visas. British travelers will need only a valid passport and a return ticket for a stay of up to 90 days. A visa will still be required to live or work in the United States.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan won his appeal Tuesday against a government ban preventing him from visiting Britain. Justice Michael Turner did not immediately disclose his reasoning in overturning the ban, imposed by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's government in 1986. The judge said he would give his reasons Oct. 1, and he prohibited Farrakhan, a Chicago-based activist, from entering Britain until that time.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has asked Britain's High Court to lift a 15-year ban on his entry into the country, arguing that it violates his right to freedom of expression. Successive British governments have excluded Farrakhan out of fear that he would incite racial unrest. Upholding the ban last November, then-Home Secretary Jack Straw said Farrakhan's "anti-Semitic and racially divisive views" could harm community relations.
