You might want to check your ESTA validity, if you frequently travel to the USA. The validity of your ESTA visa generally lasts for two years, as well as it allows you to do multiple trips to the United States for that period. Also, if your passport expires before your ESTA visa does, it nullifies your travel authorisation in the process. However, it is important to remember that if you are in the US when your ESTA visa expires, it does not affect your departure from the country.
It is commonly recommended to print a copy of your travel authorisation for your records. You do not need to have it without on your travels, but some airlines ask for the printout upon check-in. You may check with your airline before travelling to the USA. Even though the validity of your ESTA visa lasts for two years, it does not mean that you can stay in the United States of America for two years. You can only stay in the US for a maximum of 90 days under the terms of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
Check ESTA Status
In some cases, you might want to check your ESTA status. If you are unsure about how long your ESTA visa is valid or if it even is valid anymore, you may check your ESTA status. Also, if you have accidentally deleted your PDF with your ESTA number, or you have lost the number, you can verify your status with the Check ESTA Status form.
