ESTA Visa For Citizens With A UK Passport

✓Are you from the UK? You can now apply for the ESTA Visa

Travelling to the United States of America has never been easier for people from the UK. Before the introduction of ESTA Visa (Electronic System for Travel Authorization), most people from the UK had to apply for a visa at the US Embassy to be able to travel to the US. Now it is much easier. All citizens of countries in the Visa Waiver Program and with a valid, machine-readable passport can now apply for the ESTA visa. The travel authorization may grant the opportunity to enter the US for up to 90 days, for business trips, tourism and medical reasons only. The application form is simple, and all the steps have explanations to help along the way. When submitted, the ESTA visa will be sent to the e-mail address used in the application. It will normally take less than 72 hours.

Why Can UK Citizens Apply For An ESTA Visa?

To be able to apply for the ESTA visa, your country must be a part of the Visa Waiver Program, which is a group of selected countries that can apply for the ESTA visa. England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland can be found among these countries. This is because of their strong ties to the US and that they are all well-established economic forces with good reputations. The ESTA visa makes it a lot easier to travel between the US and the UK, which is very beneficial to the US economy, as well as the global economy.
