  1. I wasted my time and money on a flight , from Bristol/Dublin/Canada to Denver. I was issued a valid visa on 27th October 2017 by Esta by gmail. I got on flight with visa and passport and flew over and my Esta Visa passed check ins at Dublin and when I reached Toronto US check in Homeland Security said the visa had been cancelled and the numbers didn’t match theirs. I was not informed of any of this by gmail or mobile info. I returned home and checked my emails and there was no cancelled info on gmail. I phoned ESTA office up and the sent another email confirming the visa was valid. Then Washington office sent an email after my flight was taken say it was cancelled. Will you give me my flight money back please, because my USA friends were disappointed because you didn’t allow me in. Why didn’t your staff inform me of any problems before I booked the flight?¬† Why wasn’t I informed or why wasn’t the USA listed people informed to. They were named on the valid visa.

    • Yes airline was United airline which is USA based company and they don’t give refund. It’s ripped off. If esta is such useless don’t put up online. It’s misleading people

  2. ESTA Registration was successful

    Good Day, Application number R98771W6XR42ATFT is denied. You can view that status by retrieving the application through the official ESTA web site. If you have been denied an ESTA travel authorization, you may be able to obtain a visa from the Department of State. Visa applications are made at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Please visit the United States Department of State web site at for additional information about applying for a visa. An ESTA denial does not deny entry into the United States. This response only prohibits traveling under the Visa Waiver Program.If you were charged more than $14 USD per application, you have gone to a third party web site or service such as a travel agency or airport representative. This is the U.S. government website:
    A charge from the US government will appear on your credit card statement as: // USCUSTOMS ESTA APPL PMT – 317-617-4458 //Most of the third party sites will electronically submit a legitimate ESTA application for you, however they add on their own fee on top of the $14 USD ESTA fee. You can use the official ESTA website ( to look up your passport information and see if you have a valid application.Thank you,

    [—001:002957:28694—] don’t BOTHER USING THESE PHONEYS THEY CANCELLED MY TOURIST VISA AND NEVER EVEN TOLD ME AND I TOOK FLIGHT from England to Denver and wasn’t allowed in USA because they cancelled the visa without even contacting me before I flew out. Watch your asses concerning USA people.

    • FIll the form online, pay with card (US $14 per application) and after that you’ll receive an e-mail with your Application Number. You either got Application Status immediately, or you can check your Status later online. You don’t need to print it, Immigration officer will find it in his computer using your passport number.

    • ESTA US esta is not reliable when you enter USA
      You will get rejected
      It’s my experience. It’s misleading information

  3. Actually, we now have an iPhone app that can make the visa waiver (ESTA) process much easier. If you’d like to see how it works, check out our video. How SimpleVisa helps you get your Visa Waiver (ESTA) for your US travel

  4. This is the biggest BS I have ever seen. I want every US traveler to fill out a form for customs in German, French, or Spanish depending on the country they wanna go to. Also, dont forget this electronic form and a fee of 50 Euros. Lets not forget a green or white visa waiver. Let US travelers stand in line for hours and refuse them entry if they havent filled the blanks in right. I would also have them make finger prints and show us medical records before entering our beloved Europe.

  5. I apologise for the fact that the US Government is expecting people to be competent to fill in simple online forms. My understanding is that ESTA is modelled on Australia’s ETA system, which seems to assume computer literacy among all its visitors as well.
