ESTA & VISA
IMPORTANT TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS

If you are traveling to the USA under the Visa Waiver Program (which allows passport holders from 36 countries, mostly in Europe, Australasia and Japan to visit the US for up to 90 days without a visa), you must go on-line and fill in an ESTA form, the Department of Homeland Security’s compulsory pre-check-in procedure.
- Valid for two years, this new Electronic System for Travel Authorization costs $14.

Be sure to go to the official website to read the full details of the new Electronic System for Travel Authorization.
