Help to obtain the ESTA for the USA

Electronic System for Travel Authorization ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Since 2008, countries that are part of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) have beenrequired to apply for an ESTA online before taking a flight or ship to the US. Passengers who have not registered for ESTA risk being banned from flying, although it is possible for them to regularize their situation at the airport for a possible additional fee. As of May 2, 2022, the I-94W form is replaced by the ESTA electronic authorization.

โš ๏ธ Please note, if you have traveled to Cuba since January 12, 2021, you are no longer eligible for ESTA, please contact a U.S. consulate for a visa application. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is a process for determining the eligibility of visitors to the United States to determine if they pose a risk to homeland security or law enforcement. The system checks law enforcement databases.

The ESTA is issued in
72 hours for urgent departures

  • ESTA valid for 2 years
  • 90-day stays in the USA
  • 100% onlineprocess
  • Official document from the authorities

If your ESTA is granted, it establishes that you are eligible to travel, but does not establish that you are eligible to enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Program. When you arrive in the United States, you will be interviewed by a US border protection officer at a port of entry who may determine whether you are inadmissible under the Visa Waiver Program or for any reason under US law.

The ESTA is not a visa.
It does not allow you to find work, settle in the USA to live or any other activity that US immigration would find abusive. It does allow you to travel to the USA for visa waiver purposes, if your situation allows it.
