ETSA is a process that is new to many, and they do not understand what it entails. ESTA was introduced to make the traveling of UK to US easy, you can now travel to the US from the UK without a Visa, and instead you will be required to have an ETSA. Although this process is easy than the Visa application process, a lot of people fail to understand what it entails and how it has come to help. The article will shed some light on the ETSA process, and it indicates why you may need help with the process.
ETSA is a document that you are provided after you have provided information online and it has been vetted, and you have been found to be fit to visit the United States. This process takes a shorter time than the VISA process because it takes twenty-four hours for the approval status to be communicated to you after you have applied online. Another major difference is the validity of the document. This document allows you to be in the USA for two years from the date that you receive the approval. You cannot extend the document like the VISA.
This document is mostly used for the purpose of traveling and business. The permit you get for business purposes has limits, and you cannot take a job or start a business within that time. Business purpose means you can attend functions that your company is holding in the US. However, you can also use the ETSA for medical emergencies and for school if the course that you are taking is a very short course.
You are not guaranteed to get authorization after application; you can either receive the authorized approval, pending approval, or travel, not authorized response. The approved response means that you can travel using the ETS. When the approval is pending it means that the information that you have provided will need to go through a secondary vetting and it will take seventy-two hours for you to know the fate of your document. Finally, when the response is travel not authorized then it implies that you are not eligible to travel using the ETSA.
The approval of the ETSA is determined by the information that you provide. To get fast approval, you need to apply in good time and offer the right information. There have been a lot of instances when people have failed to receive authorization because of the mere fact that they offered the wrong information. To ensure that you get a good response, always engage experts in the application process.
