August 27, 2020- Applications for ESTA visa waiver are being accepted: An approved ESTA is valid for 2 full years. While some travel to the United States has been suspended temporarily, due to the 2019 novel Coronavirus, eligible UK citizens may apply now to ensure they are at "the front of the que" for approved visa-free travel as soon as entry is permitted. ESTA visa waiver authorisation allows travel to the United States with a 90-day limit for each trip, without the need for a traditional visa. Explore our complete guide to ESTA to learn more.
TRAVELLING TO THE US? NEED TO APPLY FOR AN ESTA?
Ensure your ESTA application is granted as soon as possible. Our online ESTA application system takes minutes to complete with easy to follow forms and instructions. Our agents in the US and Europe are readily available for questions or concerns. Support throughout the ESTA process is always available.
The ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) was developed to strengthen security measures and ensure the safety of visitors travelling to the United States of America (US). The ESTA online authorisation process is, in essence, a screening procedure that analyses traveller information and determines eligibility to travel to the U.S. under this programme. Only citizens of Visa Waiver Program countries should apply for an ESTA.
An ESTA application is processed immediately after completing the online form. All applications are reviewed by an agent for errors or omissions. You may receive your ESTA authorisation document within minutes if there are no delays, to up to 24 hours.
Common reasons for denial of an ESTA may include; using a passport number that was reported lost or stolen, answering wrong on ESTA application questions, staying longer than approved on a previous visit, or denial of a previous Visa to the US. Please note, we are not provided with the specific reasons for a denial in your case. Our agents assist with typical errors or omissions and may contact you to clarify portions of your application.
Absolutely. When applying for ESTA on our website, we will link you to a secured server site in the US for the purchasing and processing of your ESTA Application. This site is hosted on a secured server and is monitored by the highest level of security. Your data is not shared and is used only for the purposes of completing the ESTA transaction.
Your ESTA to the US is valid for two (2) years from the date of issue. However, if your passport expires prior to the two years you will need to apply for a new ESTA.
The Following Countries participate in the ESTA programme. If you are a citizen of one of the following countries and plan to visit the United States (US) you must apply for an ESTA online.

You must also have a round trip ticket as proof of departure from the United States within the allowable 90-day stay period.

All you need is a passport, a credit card and a few details about the upcoming trip to the United States. Enter the traveller’s personal information in our online ESTA form and we will carefully check it to catch any mistakes or omissions before we process it for you. It is important to provide a valid email address because this is how we deliver your application results which typically arrive within 30 minutes of submission.

Once you are approved with the ESTA (travel authorized), you have permission to travel to the United States. It is important to understand that obtaining your ESTA approval does not guarantee admittance into the United States. This is determined by a Customs and Border Protection officer at the port of entry. Print your ESTA approval document and carry it with you because it may be helpful at check-in or during the customs screening process. The Customs and Border Protection officer may ask for this document.
