Three points on applying for ESTA by smartphone
1. Be sure to complete the application at least three days prior to travel
Although you may usually examine the results of your ESTA application within three days, or 72 hours, in exceptional instances, such as when access is busy or the service is down, it may take longer. Apply for an ESTA as soon as your trip arrangements are finalized.
2. Make a note of the passport number of your valid passport in advance
When applying for an ESTA, you must provide your passport number. Without a passport number, the application cannot be completed.
Make a note of your valid passport’s passport number ahead of time.
When using a smartphone or tablet to apply, be careful not to make any mistakes when entering information and double-check all things after entering them.
3. Make a note of addresses and contact information in advance
Filling out the application while looking for locations and contact information on a smartphone or tablet may take longer than intended. Make a note of your contact information ahead of time to enable a seamless ESTA application by minimizing the time necessary and preventing incorrect submissions.
Even if you don’t have a computer, you may apply for an ESTA using your smartphone or tablet. However, doing so frequently may result in errors such as typos, inputting passport numbers with the wrong amount of digits, or typing numbers instead of letters or vice versa.
If you want to apply for an ESTA via smartphone or tablet, consider the three recommendations above and allow adequate time to apply and prepare for travel.
