The Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) is the entry system for travellers entering the USA under the Visa Waiver Program. It is necessary for those looking to travel to the USA to apply for an ESTA visa. Applications can be made here.
The ESTA system currently accepts the following credit/debit cards: MasterCard, Visa and Discover. Applications will not be submitted for processing until all payment information is received. Applications can be submitted at any time prior to travel. Once approved, authorisations are generally valid for multiple entries into the US for up to two years or until the applicant's passport expires. Under the new interim final rule, travellers with an approved ESTA will not need to pay the ESTA fees when updating an ESTA application. However, travellers with new passports and reapplying for an ESTA will need to pay the ESTA fee.
Please note: As of 1 April 2016, you must have a valid chipped passport to get an ESTA or travel to the USA via the VWP. If you do not have a chipped passport, you may need to apply for a new one before travel.
Please note: You must complete your ESTA prior to travelling to the USA.
