Default Pilot Program for Travelers on Flight 6

Dallas-Fort Worth Immigration Lawyer Has Just Posted the Following:
On November 12, 2009, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a 30 day pilot program to test the entry process for travelers under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) from Auckland, New Zealand to Los Angeles International Airport. The program automates the arrival/departure of travelers with an approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) for travelers on Air New Zealand Flight 6. Travelers on this flight will not need to fill out the paper I-94W.

The VWP allows nationals from VWP countries to fill out an ESTA application prior to traveling to the United States to determine the traveler’s eligibility and whether such travel poses a security risk. The ESTA application provides basic biographical, travel, and eligibility information and must be submitted online prior to traveling. There are currently 35 countries eligible to travel to the United States under the VWP. Travelers under this program may enter the U.S. for either business or tourism for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa.

To view the list of VWP countries please visit the CBP website at www.cbp.gov.

I'm assuming the ESTA application is a one-time thing, otherwise no different than filling out yet another form.

ESTA is valid for 2 years - you only need to do it eithere every 2 years or when your passport expires - whatever comes first - my sister in law is using it to come to the US next week for Thanksgiving and had to sign up for the ESTA a couple of months back when she booked her ticket.

Only thing is it's for Visa Waiver countries at the moment - although I suspect that they would extend it to anyone who has a visa at some point. I believe that's the same thing that the Australians do.

hope that helps.
