ESTA

ESTA = Electronic System for Travel Authorisation Since January 12, 2009 you are required to apply for travel authorisation before you will be allowed to board an airrcraft or vessel to the United States. The authorisation can be obtained at the dedicated website.

We recommend that you apply for your ESTA authorisation at least 3 days prior to departure and to carry a paper copy with you to the airport. In most cases you will receive your authorisation code upon completion of the online form, however, it may also take up to 3 working days. If you do not receive an ESTA authorisation you will need to apply for a visa with the US Embassy. The ESTA authorisation is valid for 2 years or until the date your passport expires (if within 2 years). Data pertaining to your accommodation address, flight number etc. will need to be updated prior to each journey. If you do not have a valid ESTA authorisation you will be denied boarding your flight.
