Essential ESTA Information for the United States

ESTA is a method of authorization used by the U.S. government. It allows travel for citizens of relevant nations who meet the security requirements required. It removes the permission process for those individuals who do not require a full inspection for their journey to the United States. Those who do not meet the required criteria must apply for an official United States visa.

Please be aware: If you receive an ESTA to travel to the United States, please be aware, this does not automatically grant access. Entry is usually decided upon the traveler’s arrival on US soil. US Customs and Border Protection officers undertake this task. For this reason it is important to offer accurate information to avoid complications when you arrive at U.S. border control.

A full list of available US visas, including descriptions, can be found when you click ‘start application’.

What is an ESTA? Do I Need a Full Visa?

The visa waiver program, also known as an ESTA (Electronic System For Travel Authorization) is an online document that allows an individual to travel without the need for a ‘full visa’.

You can submit your ESTA application online here. Once checks are made, your application will be submitted. If you are approved, the travel authorization will be electronically linked to your passport. Citizens of the Visa Waiver Program are eligible to apply for an ESTA. You can view the full list of Visa Waiver countries here.

You may visit the USA for up to 90 days at a time. This can be for up to 2 years or until your passport expires.

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. This is done to ensure there will be no issues with your authorization. Sometimes it can take up to 72 hours for an application to receive a decision. You will be kept up to date from the moment your application is submitted.

Requirements For an ESTA

You will be eligible for an ESTA providing you meet the following criteria:

Citizen of a visa waiver country.

No previous convictions.

No previous immigration issues.

Never visited any 'high-risk countries'.

Passport(s) from a Visa Waiver Program nation that is valid. 

List of Visa-Exempt Nations.

Traveler's genuine email address.

Home address and phone number of the traveller.

Payment method: Application fees are $21.00 USD.

How Do I Know If I Need An ESTA?

If you are travelling to any part of the USA and are from one of the visa waiver countries (i.e. UK, Ireland, Australia, Italy etc..) then you will need an ESTA for your travel.

How long does ESTA take to be approved?

ESTAs are usually processed on the same day and your result should be with you within 24 hours. In some cases it can take up to 72 hours.

How long can you stay in the US with an ESTA?

You can stay in the US with an ESTA for up to 90 days at a time within any 180 day period. This applies to multiple trips over the 2 year validity. It only permits travel to the United States under the terms of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which limits stays to 90 days or less. If you intend to stay longer than 90 days, you must obtain a visa from the U.S. Embassy or Consulate nearest to you.

If you wish to stay longer, you will require a non-immigrant visa such as the B2 tourist visitor visa.

For detailed information on specific parts of the USA visa process, you can refer to the links in the table on the right to find the answer to your query. If you are unable to find any particular information, please contact us visa email.

What if I am refused for my ESTA?

If you are refused you must instead apply for a non-immigrant B1 or B2 visitor visa. This requires an appointment with the U.S. Embassy. You have the option to contest this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that opted to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a ESTA visa and the reasons for the denial. If you have been denied ESTA travel authorisation, you must apply for a visa. You can apply for this on our website to avoid any further complications.
