Visiting US under Visa Waiver Program

On January 12th, 2009 the United States of America introduced the new ESTA – Electronic System for Travel Authorization that contemplates (and obliges) to register online receiving a preventive authorization for travelling to the US. Information requested are almost the same that are requested, during travel, using the I-94W Form (the little green card you get on plane).

Every passenger needs to:

  • Fill in his/her own questionnaire (for couples travelling together, they both need to do the procedure);
  • Provide an e-mail address where to receive the confirmation and a phone number;
  • It is suggested to do it in advance, when you already have the travel plan, and within 72 hours before the trip;
  • During registration, you need to have: Passport, complete travel plan and hotel name and addresses where you’ll be staying

This procedure is mandatory to travel but it really takes a few minutes to fill in. You’ll then receive a confirmation e-mail within few moments.

So, if you plan to go to the US, don’t forget to register here !
