Each citizen of Visa Waiver Program participant countries travelling to the United States for business or tourism have to receive an electronic travel authorization in the ESTA system prior to departure. Children also, regardless their age, have to receive a separate ESTA approval.
It is recommended to receive an ESTA approval not later than 72 hours prior to departure to the United States. Usually ESTA applications are processed within 24 hours, but it must be taken into account that the final response term is 72 hours. If the application is submitted shortly before departure, then it may come to a situation when it is not processed in a due time and the individual may not depart. It has to be considered that in separate situations an application may also be denied. In such a case an individual, prior to travelling to the United States, must apply for a visa at the U.S. Embassy.
