If you’re planning a trip to the North American one of the biggest considerations which is pivotal to your travel arrangements is whether or not you’re granted authorization to enter the USA. This authorization mainly comes in the form of a travel visa, but for citizens who hail from specific countries they can basically go via the ESTA register and essentially get their authorization without having to physically visit the US embassy office in their native land. Applying for ESTA online is a very straight forward exercise and can be summarized into four easy steps.
The first step simply entails confirming whether or not your native country is on the list of 38 countries to whom citizens are eligible for the visa waiver program and these include:
Asia – Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Brunei
Europe & Scandinavia – United Kingdom, Austria, Czech Republic, Portugal, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Estonia, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Finland, Slovakia, France, Andorra, Spain, Iceland, Lithuania, Greece, Slovenia, Italy, Norway, Latvia, Malta, Denmark, San Marino and Sweden
South America – Chile
Australasia – Australia and New Zealand
