Great Reasons Why ESTA is Your Best choice for a USA Visa Application

Traveling to or through the USA is  a great holiday option but some people are put off by the US visa system. There is no need to be, although the USA does have some visa options that require lengthy forms and embassy contacts, they also have The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) for 38 countries including most of Europe, Australasia, and Canada. This visa waiver is valid for two years and is for stays in the US of up to 90 days. The good news is that the application process is online and very simple. It is implemented through the ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) automated system. The best way to set up your visa waiver is through ESTA, which offers great service and support for a number of reasons. We listed five of these reasons below:

Personal Information Security

Many of us still worry about sharing personal and confidential information online and we should all be aware of the possibilities of online fraud. By using the ESTA-ONLINE secure system to make your application, you can guarantee that your data will be stored on a secure server, only used to complete your application and never shared with outside agencies as far as it is well known ever.

One of the best things about the ESTA visa waiver system is that you don’t have to leave home to complete any part of your application. The ESTA-ONLINE’s helpful and professional team will guide you easily through your online application with no visits or phone calls to embassies or other agencies necessary. The streamlined process is easy and involves completing an online form and answering a set of questions. Any technical terms are explained clearly with examples on the esta-online website and the team is available online to guide you.


Professional Help and Support

Completing online forms for something as important as a visa might seem a bit daunting. With ESTA-ONLINE, there is no need to worry,all of their staff are professionally trained experts and will be on hand to help you through the application process should you need them.They also have a wide range of explanations and information available on their website including ‘ESTA Basics’, ‘Common ESTA Questions’ and ‘The ESTA Application Form’.  

Expedited ESTA Application Options

Even if you are in a hurry to travel, you will still need an ESTA or visa waiver if you are traveling through or to the USA. Agents from ESTA-ONLINE start work on your application in a time-saving manner as soon as it has been made but usually recommend applying at least three working days before you intend to travel. You don’t need to know your travel dates to make your application so apply well in advance if you can. If you have extreme circumstances and need to travel immediately, ESTA-ONLINE offer an expedited application service.

High ESTA Application Approval Rate

One of the biggest worries about any  visa application is whether or not it will be approved. If your ESTA visa waiver application is not approved, you may still be able to travel but you will need to contact an embassy to sort out a different type of visa. If you are in doubt about your eligibility it is recommended that you allow enough additional time for an embassy based visa application. Our agents take the bulk of the approval worry for you and will monitor the progress of your application. Once there is a result, they will feed this back to you. Your visa waiver will either be ‘Authorization Approved’, Authorization Pending’ or ‘Authorization Not Approved’. Applications from ESTA-ONLINE have an approval rate of over 95%. They are so confident about their advice and processes that they offer a 100% refund if your application is not approved.

We hope that these answers have allayed some of your worries about the USA visa waiver program. The ESTA process is a quick and simple one for those of you who are traveling for pleasure or business. Before you apply, check that your country of residence is eligible for the visa waiver program and remember that certain categories of travel such as press, visa or residency applications cannot be processed online in this way. For these applications you should apply directly to the US government office.  If you are still not sure how this all work after reading this, go into the  descriptive site which brings the latest information available.
