When you set your goal to travel to the United States you do it for many reasons, be it for medical check-ups, sports, religion or tourism. That’s when you go to the U.S. Embassy in your country for a U.S. visa.
It must be clarified that this is not a visa, if you are going to travel with the intention of working you must opt for a visa. If you are going to travel with the firm intention of continuing studies, you will also need a visa, but if your stay is for a short time, then you can apply for the ESTA.
How do I get my ESTA approved?
Applying for ESTA and being approved will not guarantee you entry into the United States, but it is already a big step towards entering that country. The immigration officer will check the form and also the answers you put on it, and will question you to make sure there are no contradictions.
Then he will check all your documentation such as your passport and your entry into the country. After this review, the official will determine your entry into the United States or the returnee of the passenger applying for entry into that country.
Your entry into the United States will depend on your intention to travel and the answers to the form. If you wish, you can process your ESTA online by filling out the form even if you are not sure whether or not you will be traveling to the United States. It is important that you comply with all the steps required by the document for processing.
Children must also process their ESTA even if they do not pay a ticket, that is, the entire family, from children to older adults must process their ESTA.
The person who fills out the Esta form can travel to the United States as many times as he or she wants, can enter and leave, but after two years will have to renew the application form. This renewal can be done up to 72 hours before your trip.
What do I need to file an ESTA petition to enter the United States?
To apply for ESTA you only need a credit or debit card to pay for the application, in addition to your valid passport and all your personal information at hand.
So you know, if you want to enter the U.S. with your family without a visa, then don’t worry, go to esta.cbp.dhs.gov. and follow the steps to opt for your ESTA.
