VISA WAVER PROGRAM

ESTA

Travel and study with ease

 

When traveling to the United States, you have options!

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables citizens or nationals of participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less. Travelers must apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to departing in order to be granted approval to enter the country, and must meet the requirements detailed below. If you prefer to have a visa in your passport, you may still apply for a visitor (B) visa and study with us.

To qualify for the Visa Waver Program you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a citizen or eligible national of a Visa Waiver Program country listed below

  • Plan on traveling for less than 90 days

  • Travel to the United States for business or pleasure

  • Apply for a ESTA authorization no later than 72 hours prior to departure

  • Currently not be in possession of a visitor's visa.

You will need:

  • A valid passport from a Visa Waiver Program country

  • A valid credit card (or PayPal) to pay the US $14.00 per application

  • Your contact information

  • Your most recent employment information, if applicable
