ESTA UK Electronic System for Travel Authorization


The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens from 38 participating countries to travel to the United States for business, pleasure or transit, for stays of 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.

The ESTA Visa Waiver Travel Authorizations are valid for two years from the issuing date of the authorization, or until the traveler’s passport expires, whichever happens first. A travaler can visit the United States multiple times with the same travel authorization during the 2 years period.

Travelers seeking admission to the United States of America under the Visa Waiver Program are required to have an approved travel authorization via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

ESTA applications could be submitted at any time prior to travel to the United States. The DHS (The Department of Homeland Security) recommends that travel authorization applications should be submitted at least 72 hours prior to travel but a traveler can submit an application even a few hours before departure.

The DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and the United States CBP (Customs and Border Protection) have provided a secure ESTA application form on-line for travelers, or a third party, to complete in order to apply for an ESTA Travel Authorization.

Once you have submitted the ESTA application form, the ESTA system performs queries to different law enforcement databases and information systems in order to determine if the applicant is eligible to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program without a regular B1/B2 visa.

In order to submit an application to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization please follow these simple steps:
