This is a step by step demonstration of filling out an ESTA form online.
If you are planning on travelling to the United States any time soon then you will need to fill out an on-line form.
Electronic System For Travel Authorization.


  1. Hi, can someone tell me what do I need to put under U.S. contact person? Is it a family/hotel that I am staying with? Thank you for your answer in advance.

    1. Lorna Lo What do you put if your completing the application before booking any hotels etc?

    2. Just put either the family address, or the hotel address which you can find by typing the name of the hotel on google….

  2. I am from the UK and am visiting Mexico on 28th January, but my flight is to L.A and I will be driven to Mexico. Does this class as being in transit to another country?
    Also, will this be a physical document that I should bring? Or once it’s approved do I not need to bring anything with me?

    Thank you in advance and any extra tips or information would be helpful

  3. In the US contact section, how do I fill out this section, if I have not yet booked a flight or accommodation yet. Do I have to wait till I have confirmed travel plans before filling out ESTA.

  4. Hello, thank you for this video. I do have one question: I’d like to go on a road trip across different states and so obviously I would not be staying at the same place for more than one or two nights. So in the travel information, should I type in the address of the 1st hotel I’d be staying at? Thank you once again

  5. What if I have middle names ?
    Where should I add it? As an alias ?

    1. Copy exactly what is on your passport. If you have a middle name, or more and its on the passport then do that, if not then if there is room to add middle names then do that, otherwise just leave it as first and last name. An Alias is not your middle name, its if you are known as someone else, like a nick name, or if you have a stage name etc.

  6. Thanks for the demonstration, it helped a lot.

    I have just one additional information… The fee could be also paid by PayPal…

  7. Hello. I keep having the INVALID STREET NAME error and I´ve already tried tu put it in so many different ways (number first, street first, etc) But still having same error… wtf is going on here? thanks a lot in advance

    1. Thank you. I do hope it is of some help to you.

  8. thanks alot for this video. really helpful. just quick question do we need to send our passport as well?

    1. You don’t need to send your passport off, but you do need your passport handy to enter your passport number which is at the top right on the main page, also you will need to input the start date and expiry date which is also on the same page. That’s it. If for any reason you need to go back in to check your details at a later date then once again you will need your passport number. Once you have approval you may want to print off a copy of the ESTA for yourself. I’m glad it was useful for you.
