What is an ESTA?
An ESTA is a new programme run by the United States Department of Homeland Security that allows you to travel to the United States without a US visa. Part of the USA Visa Waiver Program, anyone from an eligible country can make the short application process to be granted a document which will allow them to travel to the US. The system is designed to be quicker and more hassle-free than the US visa application process, although also adds an extra layer of security for US Border Control. However, only passport holders from a list of eligible countries can apply, so you will need to consult the list below.
How do I know if I need an ESTA Visa?
If you’re looking to travel to the US for a period of less than 90 days, for business or pleasure, and you’re a citizen, national or passport holder from one of the countries taking part in the programme, you will need to apply for an ESTA visa in order to visit the US.
The countries taking part in the programme are: Andorra, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brunei, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. If you have a passport from one of the above countries, you’ll need to make your ESTA application before you travel. Our site can help you fill out your form and process it for you, ensuring that you can concentrate on organising the rest of your trip.
How do I apply for an ESTA?
Applying for your US ESTA through our site offers a range of advantages. Our team will help you ensure that there are no mistakes in your form – mistakes could require you to submit a complete re-application. Our English speaking support team will help you through the process and use our experience to make sure that things go as smoothly as they possibly can. You’ll be able to track the status of your application too, and we’ll notify you if there are any issues which need to be resolved. All in all, it’s a stress free experience which will reduce the time and hassle of dealing with the authorities.
How long will it take for my application to be processed?
Most USA ESTA applications are very quick, although at present the US Department of Homeland Security recommends that you apply for an ESTA 72 hours before you travel or more, in case there are any problems. With our service, we can help you speed up the process by making sure your form is filled out as clearly as possible. Some errors in forms can require you to resubmit your whole application again, so if you need your ESTA Visa in a hurry, it’s important to make sure you get it right the first time.
Can you help me if I need to travel to the US at short notice?
ESTA applications are usually completed very quickly, but if you believe you may need to travel to the US at short notice, you can apply for your US ESTA in advance – you won’t need to change your specific travel plans should they alter in the meantime.
How long will my US ESTA last for?
ESTAs are valid for a period usually consisting of two years, unless your passport will expire before then. They will also expire should you legally change your name or gender, or if the circumstances in your original application should change, so it’s important to keep up to date. If you give us your details, we can handle all the rest.
Can you help me with re-applying for an ESTA?
Yes. If you have obtained a new passport since your last application, you have changed your name, gender, or other details, or a period of more than two years has elapsed since you last applied, we can help you through the process of changing your details and receiving a new ESTA visa.
How much will it cost to apply for an ESTA visa?
The US Department of Homeland Security currently charges a fee to all applicants looking to receive an ESTA, which you will pay on top of a small fee to help us process it.
What if I’m only passing through the US?
Even if you’re passing through the US on your way to another country, you will still need to apply for an ESTA. The US does not have any programme which allows transit through the country without a visa, so you will need an ESTA or US Visa if you are boarding any aircraft or vessel bound for the US. This requires you to make some changes on your form, which we can easily help you with to ensure there are no misunderstandings.
What happens after my ESTA is approved?
After your ESTA is approved, you’ll be free to travel to the United States until it expires. You won’t need to take any documentation with you – your status will be given directly to carriers to ensure you can board quickly. However, the USA ESTA is not a guarantee of entry on arrival – that will still be determined by border control.
What are the advantages of having a third party handle my ESTA application?
Instead of worrying about the process of filling out forms and monitoring your application, you can let us handle your ESTA application so you can focus on any other aspects of your trip. We’ll make sure that everything goes smoothly and help you to avoid some common mistakes travellers make when filling out forms, so you can receive the response to your application as quickly as possible.
What kind of information will I need to apply for an ESTA?
The ESTA form has certain basic requirements, such as basic biographical information such as your name and date of birth, your destination once you reach the US, and your passport details. You will also be asked questions to determine your eligibility, such as whether you have any criminal record, or have had any USA visa problems in the past.
