Confused about applying for an Esta visa? Don’t be. The process is simple and you can do it all online in a matter of minutes. Be sure that you have access to a computer connected to the Internet and be sure you have a credit or debit card handy so that you can pay for the nominal application fee and get your visa instantly online.
Go to the official Esta Visa website. This offers all the details and instructions that you will need to fill out and process your application. You need to obtain this if you are going to travel to the US for business or pleasure for less than 90 days. This is not the same thing as a regular visa. This is just part of the laws that were enacted in the US following the 9/11 attacks and it is designed to regulate greater air travel safety for everyone.
Do your best to fill out the online application approximately 72 hours before your scheduled flight. Be sure to answer all the questions accurately and completely. If you leave something blank it will only make getting the visa processed more difficult!
It should not take more than 15 minutes or so to answer the questions. Be honest about your health when answering questions about communicable diseases and mental status. It is very important to do this.
Once you complete the question section of the application, make sure you have answered everything correctly. Enter your credit or debit card details where indicated and submit the form. Your visa will be returned to you online in a matter of minutes. Print it out or have it otherwise ready to take with you before you travel to the US by flight or by sea. The above steps are all it takes to get this important document.
