ESTA is short for the Electronic System for Travel Authorization. The authorization is an online application that has replaced the tedious tourist visa process with a much simpler process for passport holders from the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries. Previously, a USA Visa application was necessary to obtain before visiting the United States of America, and a nearby US Embassy had to be visited as a part of the application process. However, the visa application is now referred to by passport holders in VWP countries as the “USA ESTA application” and is conveniently accessible online from all over the world. To obtain an ESTA, you are required to apply by submitting personal and travel related information through an online processing system. After submission you can expect a response within 24 hours. Depending on what type of visa you are looking for, please follow any of the steps below:
