USA Tourist Visa

U.S. Visa Required for Citizens of Non-Visa Waiver Countries


Based on the country you entered in the Eligibility Test, you are required to apply for a U.S. visa. You do not qualify to enter the United States under the visa waiver program. Only citizens of the 37 Visa Waiver Countries are allowed to enter the United States visa-free for up to 90 days. All other nationalities (except Canada) are required to apply for a U.S. visa in advance. Contact us at info@esta.us for more information on how to apply for a U.S. tourist visa.
 

About the Visa Waiver Program
The visa waiver program is a U.S. government program that enables citizens and nationals from 37 countries to enter the United States for business or visitor purposes for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa. The advantage of entering the United States under the Visa Waiver program is that you can travel to the United States on short notice. However, not everybody can enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Program. Only citizens of the 37 Visa Waiver countries are eligible to apply, and if approved they can visit the United States for up to 90 day visa-free. Citizens of all other countries (except Canadian citizens) need to apply for a visa prior to entering the United States. Learn more about the Visa Waiver Program and review a list of the 37 Visa Waiver Countries.

About the B-2 Tourist Visa
Citizens of most countries need a visitor visa (B-1 Business Visa or a B-2 Tourist Visa) in order to enter the United States. The visa application process has become more complex over the recent years due to increased scrutiny of most applicants. The process of applying for a U.S. visa is completely different than ESTA. The visa application process includes multiple application forms and and in-person interview at a U.S. consulate or embassy. Amongst a number of requirements you will be required to provide documentation proofing strong ties to your home country. Entering the United States on a Tourist Visa has several advantages over entering on a Visa Waiver Program, including the option to change  status and extend your stay.
