Amy Winehouse gets US visa

Singer set for American dates after formal interview

Amy Winehouse has been granted a visa to perform in the US.

As previously reported, Winehouse was spotted attempting to get a US work permit earlier this week (November 5).

The singer was seen entering the American Embassy in London’s Grosvenor Square for a formal interview.


Winehouse was previously denied a permit after signing a confession to drug charges in Norway in October. She has since disputed that the cannabis was hers.

As well as performing in the country, the singer is said to be considering buying a house in Miami.
