ESTA. Visa Waiver

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Due to go on holiday soon to USA. Applying for ESTA. loads of sites on net that make you pay for it. found the official site which is free.

    https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/esta.html?

    Thought this would be useful for anyone else travelling to the states. To avoid the rip off merchants.
     
  2. Just a word of warning, travelled to the states last month (NY), thinking the online waiver would let me waltz through border security but still had to complete the card on the plane and go through the system same as normal.
    Don't know if both systems are running in tandem until the bugs get fixed but a few people got caught out as they didn't take a form from the hostess on the plane and had to go to the back of the queue to fill the form out.

    Listening carefully for the next PXR :wink:

    I'm not travelling to the USA until Sep, and hope things may be be-bugged clarified by then. The OH and I have already registered with ESTA.
