Sorry if this has already been asked but there are a lot of pages on this thread, our esta runs out while we are away in April, we are hoping to go back to the world next year but nothing planned yet, do we need to renew while it is still active or just let it lapse until next year when or if we need it?

You let it lapse for now, there is no continuation from one to another, when your current one expires you start again when you are ready to travel.

Anyone have any contact info with regards to visas? I stupidly have left it until last minute as its been a crazy couple of weeks and have just moved.

I did DH's and that was approved straight away, when I did mine I put in the payment info but had Internet connection problem and it stated error, when I tried to put the info again I stated I had already have an application in process, I found the application and it states it will be approved when payment is received but there is nowhere I can add any payment info! I have checked my card and they definitely haven't tried to take the payment.

You can try their help files, or email them from here, but i can't see any phone numbers anywhere. It should be allowing you to restart the application from scratch, not sure why it's not.

EDIT: Is it giving you the message that an application with that passport number is in process? On that page, there should be a button for making a new application near the bottom somewhere?

Even though your info is correct you would need this option to resubmit with payment info...

We are travelling on August 17 2013.
I was just about to do the Esta's online and then thought it might make sense to leave it till about a week before we travel.
That way if we also go in 2015 which is possibility and went a few weeks earlier they would still be valid.
We have no convictions or anything is it ok to leave it till about a week before our flight?
Thank you.

I would myself if I was getting an extra trip out of it but I have done a couple before without issues, if it was my first I probably wouldn't.
They are only about £8 each and even if you have to renew for your trip in 2015 it will still be valid for 2 years after that, hopefully get another trip in.
Also take into account any passports that will be expiring. You need to get new a ESTA with a new passport.

Hello everyone!

I have a very quick question regarding our ESTA.

We went Florida last year, 3rd - 21st July and are going back in 2014, flying out on the 21st June and coming back on the 7th July. Will we need to do a new ESTA or will our old one suffice?

Thanks

You need to look at when you bought your ESTA's, its nothing to do with your travel dates.
If you travelled on 3rd July 2012 then you bought them on a date prior to that, if that date is for example 19th June then they will expire then they will expire 19th June 2014 and not valid for your trip.
On the other hand if for example you bought 22nd June 2012, they expire 22nd June 2014 and will be valid for your trip.

They only need to be valid for the day you enter the US unless you are leaving the country and re-entering, ie a cruise, then they need to be valid for the date you re-enter the US.

Did you print out your ESTA's? if you did there is an expiry date on there, if not you will have to go back onto the website and enter your details to find out.
I always advise to print ESTA's, last year 2 out of 3 of ours were not on the system, luckily I had copies to prove we had done them.

How far in advance should you do your ESTA forms?

In theory you could ESTA as little as 72 hours before you fly.

HOWEVER, personally i would always do it months in advance just in case for whatever reason it declines you and you have to go through the process of obtaining a full tourist VISA from the US Embassy. Others will have different views, it's just my better-safe-than-end-up-throwing-holiday-away mindset!

I did our first ones about 3-4 weeks before travelling. I was 99.99% certain I wouldn't have any issues. All went thru no problem.
On the other hand I have a customer who has just done his and he wasn't sure he would be OK, he used to live in the the US and a had a problem while out there. Didn't leave the US on the best of terms. He did his before he even booked flights to make sure they went thru OK.
If there is anything in your history then do it early, if not June or a little later will be fine.

I'm going the safety route and doing mine within the next week or so.

I have just one question. If I buy an ESTA, I don't need to apply for any other type of visa is this correct?

The reason I ask is when I went in 1989 with the rest of my family we were told we didn't need to but we still had to fill in a form when we got there. (My memory is a bit fuzzy on this though as I was 14 at the time!)
