Cost of ESTA??

Do you have to pay to apply for an ESTA?<BR>I've been onto 2 websites which both charged completely different prices. I thought that it was free to visit the USA from the UK?<BR>Can anyone help?

    Are you looking at a sight that is “assisting you” in doing the forms – they will charge a fee.

    Hey,

    It’s definitely free and don’t use any of the sites that are charging!

    The site that Mos77 gave is the correct one – it takes about 2 minutes and you get your answer and visa instantly.

    Easy peasy and FREE!

    I nearly fell for the same thing, mate. Scamming buggers!!!

    Definitely go to https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/. It’s the proper official site, is completely free & you’ll have approval with seconds of completing it. You can even edit it later if your hotel changes etc.
