4. ESTA Application

To apply for an ESTA, you must have your passport, email address and a credit card to complete the online application.

The details you provide in your online ESTA application need to be exactly the same as they appear in your passport and you must use the same passport that is linked to your online ESTA application when you travel.

In your application you need to provide your biographical information such as your name, date and place of birth, gender, marital status, address, nationality and passport number. You also need to answer a few simple background questions to determine if you can come to the Unites States. For example, you will be asked about your current job and how much money you have available for your visit to the United States, and if you have any medical issues.
