What if I forgot my application number?

To retrieve an Individual Application, select “Check Individual Status” under “Check ESTA Status” from the global navigation menu, or from Home page. If you do not know your application number, select “I Do Not Know the Application Number” and enter your family name, first (given) name, and passport issuing country, in addition to your passport number and date of birth.

A travel authorizations are valid for two years from the date of authorization, or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.

If you obtain a new passport or change your name, gender or country of citizenship, you will be required to apply for a new travel authorization. This is also required if one of your answers to any of the VWP eligibility questions changes.

Apply a ESTA

 

If your ESTA has expired, you must reapply by submitting a new application.

If your ESTA expires while in the U.S. it will not affect your departure.
