    Visiting the US. Confused about Visa. Plz Help

    Hi all,

    Visiting New York at the end of the year but am totally confused about what I need to do with regards to applying for a visa.

    People have mentioned ESTA, But it makes reference of it being a Visa Waiver Program,

    Can anyone offer any advice.

    Thanks

    The UK is part of the Visa Waiver Program, so you don't need a visa. Just complete the form on the ESTA site at least 72 hours before you fly and then complete 2 more forms on the plane on the way over and you're done.
    If you need the address for the ESTA site it's...

    EDIT: I take it you're going for a holiday and not for work ?

    It can also depend on what type of passport you have, ie if you have the new microchip passport, if you have ever had a criminal conviction etc. there is a wizard on the US embassy site that will check if you need a visa,

    We just went to Florida via New York, filled out all the visas beforehand ( as they say this is now mandatory and you have to do it before you go ) Got on the plane and had to fill them all out again anyways :roll:
