What Changes Can Be Made To MY ESTA?
If you have already applied for an ESTA visa in the past and have been successful, then the process of renewing your ESTA once expired is generally much easier. Nevertheless, a number of your personal details, passport details and other information may have changed since you last applied for an ESTA. In this case, many travellers are unsure how to go about making any specific changes to the ESTA Visa.
If you believe that you have made an error in your application, which can happen to anyone particularly if they are in a hurry, then there are a number of ways that you can go about this. In some cases, you might need to resubmit the whole document, and in other cases you might just need a few details updated. Here, we’re talking you through how to make changes to your ESTA visa application.
Do I Need To Reapply For A New ESTA Visa?
There are four distinct reasons why you might need to apply for a new ESTA Visa. The first is if your ESTA visa has expired after the 2-year period that the visa can last for. You will also need to reapply for a new ESTA visa if your passport has expired, as your passport document needs to match the ESTA visa form.
The third reason you would need to reapply for a new ESTA visa is if you have filled some information in wrong. While some pieces of information, such as spelling mistake may be amended on the application form without having to reapply from scratch, if you have missed out information or any of the information is inaccurate, you will need to start the process again. This is where our accuracy checking process comes in – we will ensure that there are no spelling mistakes in your application to ensure that this process doesn’t happen again. The final reason you may need to reapply for an ESTA is if you have legally changed some of your personal details, such as your name, gender or if any of the Yes / No questions require different answers to your initial registration.
Do I Need To Reapply For An ESTA If It Is Set To Expire During My Trip?
The simple answer to that is no. The ESTA is required to travel to the United States, but it is not required to still be valid when you leave. This means that even if your ESTA expires halfway through your trip to the US, you will be able to leave the country without any hassle – as long as it is within the 90-day period that the ESTA initially sets out as standard.
