Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) provides prior authorization to travel to/from or in transit through the United States and must be requested for a stay not exceeding 90 days if you have purchased a return ticket and if your country of nationality or birth is part of the Visa Waiver Program. In this case, you can travel without a visa, provided that your passport is:
- A machine-readable passport (MRP) issued or renewed prior to October 26, 2005
- A passport with a digital photo issued or renewed between October 26, 2005, and October 25, 2006
- An electronic passport issued or renewed after October 26, 2006
Every passenger must have his/her own passport, including children and infants.
U.S. authorities do not allow passengers without this authorization to embark on the flight.
Complete the ESTA process online with a credit card payment of USD 14.
eTA, electronic Travel Authorization, is an entry requirement (mandatory from March 15, 2016) for visa-exempt foreign nationals that are in transit or travel to Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed.
The eTA is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for five years or until your passport expires.
Applying for an eTA is a simple and inexpensive ($7 Canadian) online process that will take just a few minutes. Most eTA-eligible applicants will get their authorization within minutes of submitting the online form.
You must have a valid passport, an email address and a credit card to complete the online form. You can only apply for one person at a time. For example, for a family of three people, you will need to complete and submit the form three times.
Citizens of countries not belonging to the Visa Waiver Program or who plan on spending more than 90 days in the USA must request a regular tourist visa from the U.S. Embassy or the U.S. Consulate.
FINGERPRINTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS
Upon arrival in the United States, at the immigration desk, passengers must submit to the collection of personal information including recording of fingerprints or photographs.
Check the suitability of your documents by contacting the U.S. Consulate or visiting the U.S. EMBASSY website
