Changes To The ESTA Program

If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program partner but have received notice that you are no longer eligible to travel to the United States under that program, you should apply for a nonimmigrant visa at least three months in advance of your desired travel.  If you do not have imminent travel plans, you should pay the nonimmigrant visa application fee, fill out the DS-160 nonimmigrant visa application form at https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/Default.aspx and schedule a visa appointment.  If your travel is imminent, you may request an expedited visa appointment.  Please include in your request the date and purpose of your travel, as well as a copy of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection message you received regarding your ESTA status.  For more information about scheduling an emergency appointment, visit https://bm.usconsulate.gov/visas/
