ESTA updated for additional information for U.S. Visa Waiver Program

November 3, 2014

USA_ESTAThe Secretary of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced enhancements to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) required to be filled by citizens of countries applicable for United States’ Visa Waiver Program.

This simply means that if you belong to a country that does not require you to get a visa to visit U.S. will have to fill in additional passport data, contact information, and other potential names or aliases.

The Secretary said “We are taking this step to enhance the security of the Visa Waiver Program, to learn more about travelers from countries from whom we do not require a visa. We are also confident these changes will not hinder lawful trade and travel between our Nation and our trusted foreign allies in the Visa Waiver Program.”

Under the Visa Waiver Program, travelers from certain countries can enter the U.S. for up to 90 days without having to obtain a visa.

The heightened measures also come after the administration stepped up security at federal government buildings in the wake of the deadly shooting near Canada’s Parliament building.
