It was decided on January 12, 2009 that all citizens who are travelers to the US are required to apply for ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization). ESTA is thus a required travel permit and a requirement for entry into the United States. The ESTA requirement applies to all travelers to the United States through the Airway or Seaway under the Visa Waiver Program. In order to apply for ESTA, a valid passport is required, and travelers without an approved ESTA travel permit will be denied access on any flight to the United States.
How long does it take me to apply for an ESTA Travel Permit?
The ESTA application form takes an average of 15-20 minutes to complete. When submitting your application, all your information will be reviewed by a certified ESTA service provider, and the application will be forwarded to the official US Government for consideration.
If the travel permit is rejected, it is possible to apply for a non-immigrant visa with the US Embassy.
Which countries are included in the Visa Waiver program?
The following countries are currently part of the Visa Waiver program: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Holland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and England.
