ESTA:

To apply for admission into the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, the traveler must meet each of the following conditions:

  1. You must have a valid electronic passport issued by the participating country and be a citizen (not only a resident) of that country. Electronic passports show the symbol on the cover, indicating that the passport contains an electronic chip. 

  2. Log onto the official ESTA website https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov and obtain an electronic ESTA travel authorization. ESTA is a fully-automated, internet-based electronic system for screening passengers before they begin travel to the U.S.  ESTA is mandatory for travelers from Visa Waiver countries such as Belgium.

ATTENTION:

  • Please obtain this electronic travel authorization (ESTA) before you make any travel arrangements (max. 90 days or less for tourism, business or transit).

  • The only US-government approved ESTA website is https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov

If you have traveled to or been present in Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia or Syria on or after March 1, 2011, you need to have a visa.
