How can I correct a mistake regarding Passport Issuance Date or Passport Expiration Date after completing my application?

An applicant can update the Passport Issuance Date or Passport Expiration Date as long as the application has not been paid for. If an applicant enters the wrong Passport Issuance Date or Passport Expiration Date after having paid for the ESTA application, the traveler will need to re-apply for a new travel authorization. The associated fee will be charged for each new application submitted. The previous application will be canceled.

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.
