Renewing your ESTA
An ESTA document must be renewed in several cases.
1. If the traveler changes passports
A passport remains valid for 10 years. After this period, it can no longer be used and must be renewed. Each passport is associated with a specific number, so an ESTA certificate obtained with an expired passport must be renewed to ensure that the information on the document matches that on the passport.
2. If the traveler’s personal information has been changed
A traveler who changes his or her name or nationality during the two-year validity period of his or her ESTA will have to complete a new document. If you change your gender, you must also renew your ESTA.
3. If the traveler’s history has changed
The ESTA form includes questions about the traveler’s marital status, but also offers a series of 10 questions that require a yes or no answer. If either answer changes, a new ESTA certification must be made.
4. If the current ESTA certificate is no longer valid
After two years, an ESTA certificate is no longer valid.
How to renew your ESTA?
An ESTA certificate is valid for two years. Except in cases where this is not the case (see above), it does not have to be renewed before this deadline.
After two years, it will be necessary to repeat the process online. Each traveler must therefore fill in his or her personal information and all data concerning his or her background. All new travel authorizations must be paid directly online.
The answer from the US immigration will be given by e-mail, within a maximum of 72 hours.
Note: If you lose your valid ESTA, you do not need to renew your ESTA. You can retrieve this one online, by logging on to the official US Customs website.
