In simple words, ESTA USA or Electronic System for Travel Authorization is a tool or an automated system that travelers need to get their selves to the US border. It is an amazing opportunity for travelers to get pre-screened and to declare certain information about themselves. This Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is administrated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in consultation with the State Department. ESTA permits nationals and citizens of 39 countries to travel to the US for tourism or business purpose for a stay up to 90 days without a proper visa.
ESTA is not the only key you need to enter into the USA, but once you land in the USA a Border Patrol Agent decides to let you enter or not into the country. After providing your passport to the border control post, an agent usually asks a range of questions regarding your US stay and other details of the trip. These questions may include:
- Why you are in the United States?
- Where you will be visiting?
- Where you are going to stay?
- Whether you have been before? Etc.
It is also possible that the official may ask about what you do for a living? Financial resources and how you will afford your trip to the US? The questions may vary from person to person, but there is nothing to be alarmed.
But, in case if you are suspected of attempting to migrate to the USA or having lied on your ESTA application form, you can be put back on the same airplane that you boarded to arrive and returned to the port of origin.
Travelers in the following category are also not eligible to be admitted or travel to the USA under the VWP:
- Only an e-passport holder with an embedded electronic chip can apply for ESTA.
- ESTA is also not valid for nationals of VWP countries who are also the nationals of North Korea, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, or Iran.
- Nationals of VWP countries who have been present or traveled to North Korea, Sudan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen, or Iran are also not eligible for ESTA.
