IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING YOUR TOURIST VISA TO USA
All passengers travelling to the United States are required to complete an online form used to screen passengers under the Visa Waiver Program. This is called ESTA - the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation.
The Visa Waiver Program enables citizens of participating countries to travel to the U.S. for tourism, business or transiting the U.S. for 90 days or less without obtaining a U.S. visa.
Passengers may apply for authorization via ESTA at any time prior to travel to the United States, but are encouraged to do so at least 72 hours before travelling. A fee of $14 applies. All passengers are required to present a printed copy of the authorisation to Customs and Border Protection.
As of 01st April 2016, all passengers travelling to the USA must have a valid electronic passport. Please see the following link for more information ie.usembassy.gov/
