Remember your ESTA when travelling to the U.S.A…….
Whether it’s a family holiday to Florida in the summer or Christmas shopping in New York, don’t forget to apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) prior to departure. The online application process is pretty straightforward, costs approx. $14 and is then valid for two years.
The official recommendation is to get your ESTA a minimum of 72 hours before you travel, but to be on the safe side you might wish to consider applying before booking your flights or holiday.
Easiest way to apply is via the official US Embassy website here: https://esta.cpb.dhs.gov.esta
