My travel authorization was denied

Unfortunately, the Department of State is unable to guarantee next-day appointments because of varying demand for visas. Information about the appointment process is available at the nearest consular section or on The Department of State website. As a result, travelers are encouraged to apply for an ESTA approval far in advance of the proposed travel.

A travel authorization is valid for two years after the application date or until the passport expiration date whichever happens 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.

Your ESTA must be valid when you enter the U.S., if it expires during your stay it will not affect your departure.
