I am traveling on a passport showing an "X" sex marker. How do I complete the ESTA?

ESTA does not currently have a gender "X" to choose from on the application. It is suggested that the traveler choose from whichever they feel most comfortable. ESTA will not be denied solely on the gender chosen on the application.

A travel authorizations is 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.

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.
