How does it work?

What is an ESTA?

A US ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) is an electronic document that simplifies entry into the United States. It is equivalent to a visa, but no stamp or label is placed in your passport. It is required to enter the United States unless traveling on a US visa.

Applying for a US ESTA is simple using VisaCentral

  • Check your eligibility for a US ESTA below.
  • Make your plans to travel to the United States.
  • Apply for your US ESTA using VisaCentral here. Make sure you apply at least 72 hours before your travel to the US.

Once you receive your ESTA

  • CIBT will notify you by email when your ESTA is approved. We will include the official approval from the DHS for your records
  • You're set to travel to the United States. Remember to check the Health and Entry regulations.
  • Your ESTA allows you to stay in the United States up to 90 days
  • Your ESTA is valid for two years from issuance (or until your passport expires, whichever is sooner)

US ESTA serves as a prescreening tool for entry into the United States. Receipt of a US ESTA does not guarantee entry into the United States, final decision for entry resides at the port of entry with the US Customs and Border Protection Service and Department of Homeland Security. It does not meet the legal or regulatory requirements to serve in lieu of a U.S. visa when a visa is required under U.S. law. Individuals who possess a valid visa will still be able to travel to the United States on that visa for the purpose for which it was issued. Individuals traveling on valid visas are not required to apply for ESTA. VisaCentral and this site are not affiliated with any government body. We manage the entire application process on your behalf, assisting you to navigate through the complicated requirements. Fees will vary based on the destination and complexity of your application. VisaCentral service fees are additional and separate to any government/consular fees due to the relevant embassy. You can apply for an ESTA directly through the DHS website, however you will not benefit from the VisaCentral services listed above. Further information about the US ESTA program is available at the US Customs and Border Protection website at: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/international-visitors/frequently-asked-questions-about-visa-waiver-program-vwp-and-electronic-system-travel.
