How can I apply for ESTA?
To receive an ESTA USA, applicants must apply online using the website that provides the online esta application form.
On this website, you will be asked to
- complete a Travel Authorization Application form
- with your personal data
- as name and surname,
- date of birth
- and residential address.
Not just your data. In fact, the ESTA form includes
- questions to verify your reasons for entering the United States.
In this instance, it is critical to be truthful and avoid spelling or typo errors, especially in categories such as name and personal information.
Because? In the event of a typographical error, the request may be denied by the competent authorities or not accepted upon entrance into the nation since it contradicts the information on the passport.
What if you want to travel to the US without a specific travel plan?
Because the ESTA can only be awarded for business, tourism, or transportation, having a travel plan is not required at all times.
If this is the case, we recommend specifying a tourist motive in the online request, maybe adding aeroplane ticket details and the needed address data once at the location.
It will only be essential to provide a destination address, allowing you complete flexibility in arranging for the days following your arrival. In reality, as a tourist, you will not be required to disclose information about your travels or destinations.
Once in the United States, you are free to do whatever you want as long as you follow the terms of your travel permit.
Let us recall what they are: no more than 18 hours of work or study each week.
Once you have gotten the ESTA, you are free to visit the United States and travel to any location of your choice. For the next 90 days, you will not be required to record your movements.
However, you will be unable to work since you will be violating the entrance requirements of your travel permit. Furthermore, keep in mind that staying in the United States for more than 90 days is not permitted.
If you do not follow these regulations, you will be unable to return to the United States for ten years after the day you exceeded the 90-day limit.
Finally, ESTA allows you to go to the United States without a fixed stay arrangement.
In the online application, simply state “tourist” as the reason for the visit.
This is in contrast to a travel visa, which requires a well-defined cause for the journey, such as a work or study visa.
Furthermore, if you qualify for ESTA, acquiring this authorisation will be lot easier and quicker.
In reality, the Esta request is totally online and is typically accepted the same day, if not within 72 hours.
The travel visa must be requested for at the nearest US embassy or consulate, and approval might take weeks to months.
Once you have gotten the ESTA, you will be able to visit Route 66 by motorbike, celebrate Carnival in New Orleans, and enjoy the beaches of Florida or the Keys.
Planning your ideal trip to the United States has never been easier with a valid passport and membership in the VWP.
Everyone, have a safe and enjoyable journey to the United States!
