ESTA Check - Verify Application Status

You can do an ESTA check right here by clicking on the green button to verify your application status. Applying to travel under the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (a necessary step to use the United States Visa Waiver Program) is simple, but it's important to pay close attention to the details of the program, your citizenship information, and your travel plans to ensure your application is successful.

If you applied for travel authorisation the last time you visited the United States of America, there is a high chance that you already obtained an ESTA. The ESTA is valid for two years and can be re-used for multiple entries to the United States. We advise travellers to not travel in and out of the US too frequently. The reason is that it might raise suspicion that you are doing more than merely travelling for tourism. These visits are commonly known as “visa-runs,” which, as stated above, we advise against. Are you planning to revisit the United States of America again within the 2-year time frame, and are unsure if your ESTA is still valid or has expired? Or have you lost your ESTA number? There is a quick and easy way to do an ESTA check online to verify the application status for yourself and everyone in your travel group. We recommend all travellers to verify their application status weeks or months ahead of their trip to the United States. As of December 2018, approvals of ESTAs may take up to 72 hours to be finalised. You may check your ESTA status right here by clicking the green button.







How do I check the status of my ESTA application?

In order for us to check your ESTA status, you need to click the green button and duly fill in our verification form. The information we need from you to verify your ESTA status:

  • Last name (as in passport)
  • First name (as in passport)
  • Date of birth
  • What country are you a citizen of?
  • What country issued your passport?
  • What is your passport number?
  • Email address

When you provide us with all of the above information, we are able to check your ESTA status and email you the current status. If you have already booked your trip, you can also fill in the part about "your address in the US". The email that we send you contains a PDF that states your USA Travel ESTA expiration date. If your ESTA is still valid you can use it until the expiration date has been reached. However, if any of the following applies to you, you must apply for a new ESTA:

  • You have obtained a new passport
  • You have changed your name
  • You have changed your gender
  • You have changed your country of citizenship
  • You have changed the country where you live
  • You have changed your response to any of the eight mandatory questions you answered when applying
