If you are looking for a short term visit (E-Visa, ESTA, Visa Waiver) from Ireland to America then applications can be made on this site. If you are looking for a longer term visa please select the relevant option on the application form or call us for advice.
The Electronic System for Travel Authorization may be referred to as the following by the Airline you are traveling with:
- Visa Waiver
The visa waiver program, also known as an ESTA (Electronic System For Travel Authorization) is a online document that allows an individual to travel without the need for a ‘full visa’.
The application is completed online and if you are approved the travel authorization is electronically linked to your passport. Citizens of Ireland are eligible to apply for an ESTA.
You may visit America for up to 90 days at a time for up to 2 years or until your passport expires, whichever is first.
If you are making multiple applications, each member of your party must submit an individual application. Once you submit an application, it will go through our 8 point check to ensure there will be no issues with your authorization. Sometimes it can take up to 72 hours for an application to receive a determination but you will be kept up to date from the moment your application is submitted.
You will receive all updates via the email you provide on your application and our phone lines are open 9am-5pm (GMT+0) if you have any queries.
A Visa is required for any foreign national wishing to enter the United States. It could be a non-immigrant visa for a short period of time or an immigrant visa for a long period of time. To enter the United States, Indians must get a non-immigrant visa.
