Help section : how to apply
Even if it’s not rocket science, here’s a little overview of the information to fill out the ESTA form and the pitfalls to avoid to help you get your travel authorization quickly on our online site.
First of all, the application form is simplified compared to the one on the official government website. This speeds up the process and reduces the risk of input errors. However, we have written this section to help you step by step in your process and ensure you make your application in all serenity.
First, you need to fill in your personal information:
- sex ;
- first name, last name (please respect this order and do not indicate your name first) ;
- date, city and country of birth ;
Then you will need to fill in your passport information so that the US authorities can ensure that your passport is still valid at the time of your application:
- passport number;
- date of issue ;
- country of issue.
Important: you must have a bio-metric or electronic passport. If you are not sure, look for the symbol of a small microchip on the cover (below the word “passport”). If that is the case, you have the right passport to the United States. If not, you will have to apply for a new passport.
When entering your passport information, please distinguish between the date the passport was issued and the expiry date. Finally choose the country of issue of the passport, then your e-mail address (2 times for confirmation).
Attention: if your e-mail address is incorrect, we will not be able to send you your ESTA.
You will finally be asked to enter your bank details to finalize your request. Once this step has been completed, you will receive your ESTA travel authorization within 72 hours at the latest.
Nice trip !
