  • An ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) will allow a passenger to stay in the US for 90 days. Fingerprinting is required at the first US port of call. A full visa will allow a passenger to remain in the US until the date designated on the Visa. Again, fingerprinting is required at the first US port of call. Any individuals that are citizens of a VWP country who have traveled to or been present in Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Yemen on or after March 1, 2011 (with limited exceptions for travel for diplomatic or military purposes in the service of a VWP country) are no longer eligible to travel to the US under VWP and other restrictions apply based on the current government. Authorization by ESTA does not determine whether a traveler is admissible to the United States. US Customs & Border Protection officers determine admissibility upon travellers’ arrival.
