You don't have to update anything but if you want to just log in to the website with your confirmation number and you can update address and flight details there.

Should I be concerned about this ...

October 26, 2006 – Each VWP passport issued on or after this date must be an electronic passport with a digital chip containing biometric information about the passport owner.

We have just updated DD's passport and I don't recall being able to do any biometric info ?

Are we covered by

EXCEPTION: To be eligible for the VWP, persons presenting United Kingdom passports must possess the unrestricted right of permanent abode in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man ?

Thanks

My understanding is that ESTA is supposed to replace the need to fill in the green visa waiver form. However in May when I travelled to the States on a cruise ship we were still asked to fill out the green form as well as the ESTA. Are people being asked to fill out the form on flights now? I just find it so tedious to fill out that I hope not!

The ultimate intention is to replace the green forms but at the moment the system is not fully up and running. Virgin are now insisting on confirmation of ESTA authorisation on some routes before they let you check in so hopefully it is getting there.

Hi - probably too late now...
- the photo is on the chip - that is all the biometric data currently needed.

If you're from the UK then generally you don't need a visa. Just follow the instructions in the first post on this thread and it won't cost you anything.

If, for whatever reason, you do need a visa then you don't need an ESTA authorisation.

Hi,

Sorry probably a couple of stupid questions..

I applied for my husbands ESTA back in May and that came through fine, we had to cancel our trip two days before and I was wondering;

- does this cover us both or do I need to do one for myself?
- do I need to update any of his information as we never actually stepped foot in the US in May?

Thanks

Nicci

You need a seperate ESTA for every person.
Once you have approval it is valid for 2 years. If you input any information regarding where you will be saying when you are there then this may need changing - but it isn't 'required' information so you may not have filled that bit in.

Just want to say thanks to you for the info on this thread.

Though the process is pretty painless, it was nice to have everything laid out beforehand.

Everything went perfectly and both myself and my partner were authorised immediately.
