Visa Waiver Program (VWP)

Important Notices:

Effective April 1, 2016, all travelers must have an e-passport to use the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).  Review the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website notice.

ESTA: As of January 12, 2009, a valid ESTA approval is required for all Visa Waiver Program (VWP) applicants to travel to the United States. The Department of Homeland Security's Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is a free, automated system used to determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the VWP. It collects the same information as the paper I-94W form that VWP travelers fill out en route to the United States. ESTA applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel. An ESTA authorization generally will be valid for up to two years. Authorizations will be valid for multiple entries into the United States. DHS recommends that travelers submit an ESTA application as soon as they begin making travel plans.

Learn more about ESTA on the DHS CBP website, ESTA applications may be completed FREE online at the official DHS website.
