What should I do if I m not approved for travel?

If you receive a Travel Not Authorized response to your travel authorization application, but wish to continue with your travel plans, please visit The Department of State Web site at www.travel.state.gov for additional information about applying for a visa. The denial of a travel authorization only prohibits travel under the Visa Waiver Program and is not a determination of eligibility for a visa to travel to the United States. In the event you are not approved for a travel authorization, no court shall have jurisdiction to review an eligibility determination under ESTA.

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.
