What is the status of my ESTA for travel to the USA?

If you meet all the requirements for the ESTA document, you should not have any unpleasant surprises. You are a national of a Visa Waiver Program country. You have a biometric or electronic passport.

If your application is granted, you should know that it is possible to use your ESTA authorization for two years to go to the USA as long as your passport has not expired. Otherwise, you will have to apply for a new passport and ESTA in order to enter the United States.

What if my ESTA status is denied?

If you log in and find that your ESTA status has been denied, the process to follow differs depending on the reason for the denial.

Indeed, it sometimes happens that the applicant fills in the ESTA form with the wrong number, name or date. For this type of refusal, it is possible to make a new request about ten days after the first one. The amount to be paid will be the same.

If the denial is not due to an error, but because you do not meet the criteria, there is no point in reapplying. The American authorities will refuse your request every time. Please note that a refused ESTA status does not mean that you will never be able to travel to the USA. We recommend that you contact an American embassy to apply for a USA visa. Indeed, it is imperative to get information, because there is a visa for tourism, a visa to work in the United States or to study there.
