Features USA ESTA Application
This is an electronic request, therefore no material documents will be issued to you.
The validity of ESTA is 24 months. It is not necessary to submit further requests in case of multiple trips during the validity period.
Each stay must have a duration of less than three consecutive months (90 days limit for visits ) in the territories of the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean islands and 180 days in a year.
Warning: ESTA is closely linked to the passport for which it was requested. If the above document expires you will have to make a new ESTA authorization request.
Your ESTA travel authorization is generally valid for multiple trips for a period of two years (starting from the date you are approved) or until your passport expires, whichever comes first
ESTA travel authorization is not required in case you fly over the US skies or seas without "touching the ground", ie without stopping. For further information you can consult the "transit in the USA" document in the guide
The request is registered by the US Customs and Border Protection Office, that can check traveler data in advance.
This allows you to "block" the access of unwanted persons on US territory, preventing their departure.
When to apply for a ESTA USA?
USA ESTA Application is essential in many cases and is also required for minors in the following cases:
- For anyone who does not have an American passport or visa. Who will have to stay for a long period, who works for a US company or who has special needs will have to apply for a visa because the USA ESTA application is not enough.
- It's required for those arriving in the United States by air or sea. From 1 October 2022, it will also be mandatory to enter the United States by land.
- For all citizens residing in one of the countries included in the VWP (Visa Waiver Program). In this case there is no visa requirement. For the complete list, see the dedicated paragraph (VWP countries list).
- For those who know they have a short stay, they can show their return ticket.

It is possible to request a new ESTA travel authorization before expiry. The new one replaces the previous one. For more details, read the article Modification and Renewal of ESTA.
The request is not renewable. It is necessary to make a new request in the following cases:
- After 24 months from the issue of the previous one
- If the passport has expired and has been renewed.
- If the request form has been modified by entering information that was not present in the previous request.

Travel and Tourism Resources in USA
Do you need support?
First of all, you should know that in many cases a visa is not required to stay or transit from the United States.
If you are an European citizen, sometimes it is sufficient to request and obtain ESTA authorization (electronic system for travel authorization). In this case the procedure is much simpler, leaner, cheaper and faster than applying for a visa USA and it is not necessary to interact with the American embassy.
Prior to departure, air or water transport companies verify that each passenger has this boarding authorization. The authorization is strictly linked to the applicant's expatriation document (passport).
The procedure for making the request is very simple and digitized, you can perform the various operations in two ways:
- To the airport. It is the least used solution because it is more "inconvenient" and because it requires a physical passage at the airport facility. Sometimes it is applied in exceptional cases.
- Online. This is the most used mode because it is more versatile and faster. There are no time constraints nor the need to physically go to the front office
This authorization is essential for travel to the United States and other countries (such as Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Alaska, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands) and for temporary calls. It isn't essential in case of passage in the air zone without stopovers or stops in the territory of the United States.
