Check Your ESTA Application

Check your ESTA application using the form below to find out if it is still valid, expired or denied for travel to the United States. Once granted, an ESTA is valid for two years or the date of your passport expiry, whichever date is sooner. If you have been issued a new passport, you will need to apply for a new ESTA. Applications must be made online. A successful ESTA application is usually approved within minutes of submission.

Travelers are advised to apply at least 72 hours prior to their departure for the United States. If you have just applied for an ESTA and your status is showing as "No Application Found", please allow up to 4 hours for the application to process. Please also review the information you have provided on the form for accuracy and try again. If you have not received a decision on your ESTA application within one week of applying, please contact our support team for assistance. The primary ESTA status responses are as follows:
