Default ESTA - Travel Notification for the USA

Lots of you have probably already seen this:

Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)

Watch out for non-Govt websites that charge money to process the application, usually prominent on Google searches. ESTA is entirely FREE and can be accessed here:

https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/esta.html

Approval can be immediate or can take up to 72 hours. A reference number is given that you can use to check on the progress of your own application if it doesn't get immediate approval.

I assume that the filling in of visa waiver forms on the plane is now a thing of the past!

Just a bit of an update:

Having got your existing approval, if you keep the reference number, you can re-confirm at any time on the ESTA site, and then it is valid for 2 years from that date.

You still have to fill the Immigration and Customs forms out on the plane though....

Update Jan 2011:

The travel approval now has to be paid for.

$14 per person, the website takes credit cards.

Length of approval remains at 2 years from registration, we have just renewed ours.
