Visa Waiver Program Travelers Reminded of ESTA Requirements
DHS earlier today reminded travelers from all Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries that they must obtain approval through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before coming to the United States. This requirement, which became effective today, applies to all eligible citizens or nationals traveling under the VWP.
“We have been collecting information from visa waiver travelers for decades, and establishing a program to get that same information in advance is one enhancement that allowed us to extend the valuable benefit of visa-free travel to eight new countries in 2008,” explained Secretary Chertoff. “In addition to building business and cultural ties with our partners overseas, this is a commonsense step into the 21st century that will improve our efficiency in screening and welcoming international travelers at our ports of entry.”
ESTA is a Web-based system, initially launched in August 2008, which determines the preliminary eligibility of visitors to travel under the VWP before they board a carrier to the United States. To date, more than 1.2 million ESTA applications have been received, and more than 99.6 percent of applicants have been approved — most within seconds. DHS received authorization for VWP reforms through the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007. Under the program, eligible citizens or nationals of certain countries may travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or fewer without obtaining a visa.
DHS is taking a reasonable approach to travelers who have not obtained an approved travel authorization via ESTA. Travelers without an approved ESTA are being advised, however, that they may be denied boarding, experience delayed processing, or be denied admission at a U.S. port of entry.
