Electronic System for Travel Authorization

The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is often the preferred way for eligible foreign nationals to enter the US for brief travel because of the ease of use. We refer to it as the "Visa Waiver" program, because it waives the requirement to seek a visa through a US Consulate. Instead of going through the US Consulate, the visa waiver requires a simple online application, a small fee, and about a week of waiting for a decision. To be eligible, your travel must be for the purposes of tourism or non-remunerated business (such as to attend a conference). You cannot use the ESTA system to circumvent normal visa processes in order to work in the U.S., as an employment-authorized visa is necessary.
