Why apply for ESTA online?
An ESTA authorization is a formality chosen every year by millions of travelers who want to visit the United States. Easier to obtain than a tourist visa for the USA, an ESTA is valid for two years; this allows you to make other stays in the USA if you wish to continue discovering this immense territory.
In order to benefit from this visa-free travel opportunity, the only requirements are
- Have a valid passport for the USA for the duration of your stay, i.e. an electronic or biometric passport;
- be a citizen of one of the countries participating in the U.S. Visa Waiver Program;
- receive validation from the American security services.
The ESTA declaration can only be made on the Internet. There is no other way to obtain this travel authorization at this time.
