The facts about Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)

US Customs and Border Protection have advised that with effect from January 20, 2010 it will be mandatory for all passengers travelling to the USA under the Visa Waiver Program to receive approval to travel using the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) scheme. All passengers travelling to or transferring through the US from this date are advised to apply for an ESTA at least 72 hours in advance of their journey.

Under the new regulations, US Customs and Border Protection will not now be able to accept US-bound customers for their flight if they have not received ESTA approval or if they do not hold a valid visa or Green Card. Although not fully implemented during the past year, most UK-USA travelers are already familiar with the ESTA requirement.

ESTA can be obtained free of charge by visiting the Visit USA Website at or where further information on the scheme can also be found. Once completed & approved, the ESTA application is valid for two years and allows multiple visits without the need to reapply. Travelers can apply for an ESTA even if they have no firm plans to travel to the US.
