US ESTA Scheme to Charge $14

Date Posted: 11 Aug 2010
Category:

US authorities will be introducing a $14 fee for British tourists visiting the country though their ESTA visa scheme.

The visa waiver scheme allows nationals from a selection of countries, including Britain, to enter the US without a visa. The ESTA has been mandatory for visa waiver travellers since January 2009, and has been a free service. The move toward a paid system is currently going through Congress and is due to begin on the 8th September, from when the $14 fee will be applied.

There have been 20 million ESTAs applications to date, with around 25% of them British tourists.

Due to the change in legislation the US Department of Homeland Security is encouraging Brits who are considering a trip to the US to apply for their ESTAs now as they are valid for two years.

For clear instructions for British passengers check out the ESTA application form.
