Just done ours, rather in advance as holiday not until 2011, but amazed how simple it was - if only all holiday bookings would be this straightforward!

Thanks for the information,

Louise

We did ESTA's in June 2009 for our August 2009 holiday. My daughter (aged 11) now has a new passport. Am I correct in thinking that I have to fill in a new ESTA for my daughter, but the rest of the family can still use last years ESTA's for this August's holiday? Thanks for your help.

Yes, ESTA's are good for 2 years. But since they are linked to the Passport No. you will have to fill in a new one for your daughter.

ESTA now replaces Visa Wavier

We flew on the 24th June and as we had completed the ESTA did not have to worry about filling out the horrible green form

Thanks for the update Reid - I'm sure that comes as good news to all of us (especially me as I had to have at least 2 'practice' runs each trip )

Sorry if anyone else has put this on the thread already.

Just a quick note to say that on the Money Saving Expert website (run by Finance Guru Martin LEWIS), it is being reported that the U.S. Government may soon start charging a nominal fee for competing an ESTA

Therefore if you are planning on going in the next 2 years it is worth applying now before they start charging.

Not sure if the info is in this thread or not Matt, certainly been in other threads but no harm in reminding people.
We still had valid ones for Easter but I got new ones knowing they could start charging soon, I will be doing same again for next months trip, start new ones again to get 2 years free cover.

Though what's stopping them to cancel all the free ESTAs once they start charging and require to order a new payable one?

I don't think that would happen. I would suspect that those of us that had one in place would be allowed to see it out for the 2 years, and those who didn't have one would have to pay.

No guarantees of course - and until they make a decison as to how and when we will never know.

Hopefully they announce it a bit ahead of time so we still can get a fresh one for 2 years at the last moment.

Wasn't going to bother yet but I'm going to make the effort to do ours at the weekend for our April trip, I'd rather do it early than pay approx $14 - thanks for info

DH completed the ESTAs for our September trip a while back but we've misplaced the reference numbers - is it best just to re-apply?

You won't need the reference no. at Immigrations, but you can always getting a new number by starting the application process over.

That seems to agree with all the information that has been around regarding this.
Have you got yours already? If not I would get on there sharpish before they start charging
