ESTA Electronic System for Travel Authorization

Passports are required by all visitors to the USA; visas are required by all except Canadians, New Zealanders and UK citizens visiting for business or tourism for a stay of not more than 90 days, and providing that an onward or return ticket is held. The regulations are constantly being checked and sometimes changed, in fight against terrorism, so always double-check the current situation.

ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization)
According to the latest US Border and Customs protection laws, all European citizens entering the United States are required to apply for an electronic document called ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization), which replaces the old Visa and must accompany the regular passport. This is an automated authorization making part of the Visa Waiver Program (the travel program which permits to travel without a Visa), and must be obtained PRIOR to travel to the United States, whatever your carrier will be.

The ESTA is valid for NO MORE than 90 days, and only for reasons of business or leisure. Those who do not obtain or ask for the ESTA, and don’t have a valid Visa, may be refused to board a mean of transport (plane or ship), which is headed to the US. In all cases, the ESTA represents only a travel document, not an entry permit. The effective permit shall be issued at time of landing in the US territory. For those who are planning a trip to the US, it is extremely important to apply for the ESTA with discrete advance. The application can be made on-line through the website (
