US ESTA Visa for Australian Citizens

US ESTA visa for Australian citizens is an electronic travel authorization functioning as an online permit to enter the States without a regular visa

Australian citizens are among the lucky countries that can register for the US Electronic System for Travel Authorization and visit the States without a regular visa. All Australians need to meet a few basic requirements to use this online system. 

Australia was added to the American Visa Waiver Program in 1996. Since that year, Australians can enjoy visa-free entry to the USA and stay there for a short period of time. Their stay must be, however, relating to business, transit, or leisure activities

To obtain an ESTA online, every Australian needs to go through a quick and intuitive online application. The ESTA holder may use it for multiple entries to the States, each of which can last up to 3 months. ESTA remains valid for two years from its date of issue or until the applicant's passport becomes invalid.

Arriving at one of the American airports without a valid ESTA may result in entry refusal. All Australians planning a trip to the States must complete the online ESTA form in advance. 

USA ESTA requirements for Australian citizens

USA ESTA standard requirements for Australians go as follows:

  • Australian passport (valid for at least six months)
  • Access to any means of online payment to pay the ESTA handling fee
  • Active email address to receive the approved ESTA

The above-mentioned requirements are essential to complete the application process successfully and enjoy the approved ESTA on time

Australian nationals need to remember that they need to take for their trip the same passport used in the ESTA online application.

In case of any damage, loss, or expiration of a passport, an Australian citizen will need to apply for an ESTA one more time, registering the updated details of a new valid passport.
