Travelling to the USA – how to apply for an ESTA

Planning on going on holiday to the USA soon? If your trip is for less than 90 days then instead of applying for a full US visa you can, under the Visa Waiver Programme, travel with an Electronic System for Travel Authorisation – more often known as ESTA.

Without an ESTA, unless you are a US passport holder or have a valid US visa, then you are not going to be allowed in the country. Thankfully, applying for an ESTA is quick and easy with the online ESTA form and filling out the application should only take around five minutes. But make sure you don’t rush and make mistakes! It’s crucial you answer all the questions accurately.
