USA - apply for ESTA: step 1/2

Application form ESTA USA

Please enter your details below. Copy them carefully from your passport. You have to apply for an ESTA for all travellers in your party. You can do this simultaneously by clicking on "add traveller" at the bottom of the page. You only need to fill out the general details once.

We can also send you the ESTA(s) by post. This is optional. Email delivery will always be free of charge.

We can also mark your ESTA application as urgent. Your ESTA will then arrive within fifteen minutes. We offer this 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The U.S. government may need to manually approve your application (in less than 1% of all cases); this is the only exception to our 15-minute delivery. In that case you get the urgency costs reimbursed.

Emergency contact

You must provide an emergency contact. This can be a person within or outside the USA, like a family member, friend or business relation.


Please specify if you are traveling through the U.S. in transit to another country by selecting yes or no. If you are traveling in transit, please select "yes". If you are staying in the U.S. (even for a day), please select "no".

Point of contact USA

A point of contact in the U.S. can be a friend, family member or business relation. If you have no point of contact in the U.S., please enter the name, address and phone number of the location you are staying at (e.g. a hotel). You can also input UNKNOWN.

Address where you will stay in the U.S.

The address where you will stay in the U.S. is optional to process the application. If you plan on staying at multiple locations, please specify the first address. If you are unfamiliar with the full address details, please specify the name of the hotel or location you are visiting.
