You can check the status of your ESTA application anytime you like – if you’re ever unsure
of how, you can get in touch
and we’ll sort it out for you.. Once on the site, click
on the “Check Existing Application” option, which will take you down to the the
‘Returning Applicants Check ESTA Status’ section.
Now, you click either “Check Individual Status” or “Check Group Status”, depending on
the type of ESTA form you wish to check.
If you are checking your individual status, fill in the application number that is unique
to your application, along with your passport number and date of birth. If you do not
know your application number, click on the “I Do Not Know My Application Number” option and
you can access your application by providing other details, including passport number, date of
birth, family name, first (given) name, and country of citizenship.
If you are checking for a group status, fill in your Group ID, family name, first (given) name,
email address, and date of birth to retrieve your group application. Should you not know the Group
ID, provide your family name, first (given) name, email address, and date of birth, and the Group
ID will be emailed to the email address you provide. After you have received this, you may use
it to retrieve your group application. Alternatively, you can check the individual status
of each individual.
Should you encounter any problems with any process, you can get in touch
touch with us.
Remember that your ESTA application is valid for 2 years, so it is always best to keep a saved
or printed version of the form showing approved authorisation as that would be a useful marker
for when you applied and how long your application is valid for. We recommend printing this
and storing it in a secure location.
Also, if your passport expires, your ESTA application also becomes invalid. If this occurs, you
can apply for a new ESTA once you renew your passport.
