ESTA is now in the palm of your hands

Now it’s easy to ensure your privacy when you apply for visa-free travel to the United States.

Simply apply using the new ESTA mobile app, which enables travellers to submit an application from a smartphone or tablet.

With the ESTA mobile app, travellers will have the Visa Waiver Program in the palm of their hands so they can:

•           Scan an image of their passport;

•           Have their passport read and confirmed;

•           Upload a live video selfie to confirm their identity;

•           Add personal and travel details to their application;

•           Answer eligibility questions;

•           Review and submit their application;

•           Make changes or updates to their application or profile;

•           Receive notifications and application status updates;

•           Save time by storing their preferences and profile details within the app.

The ESTA mobile app is available in 24 languages and serves travellers in all 41 VWP countries. These citizens are permitted to travel to the U.S. for business or tourism and stay up to 90 days without a visa. The ESTA application is valid for two years or until the traveller’s passport expires.

Before enjoying all that the U.S. has to offer, download the free ESTA mobile app and apply for your travel documentation when you begin planning your trip. Safe travels!

Download the free ESTA mobile app from the App Store (Apple) or the Google Play Store (Android).
