Applying for an ESTA or a visa for the USA

For many people, the USA is a destination that you must visit once. The USA has a strong influence on Western society. Every state is different, so there is so much to see in the country. It's not for nothing that many people have a visit to the USA on their bucket list. Moreover, many large companies are located in the USA. The country is therefore very much loved by Dutch passport holders as a business or tourist destination.

Not every traveller is used to travelling with a visa. Travelling within the EU does not require a visa for Dutch passport holders. If you are travelling outside of the EU, however, then a visa is often needed. This is also the case for the USA. When travelling to the USA on holiday, or for business, you will need an ESTA or a visa in most cases to be able to enter and travel in the country. ESTA stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorisation. If you have an ESTA you can show that you have official permission to enter and travel through the USA. Please note that your eligibility for an ESTA is dependant on your personal situation. If you are not eligible for an ESTA then you must apply for a visa from the Consulate. We can also assist you with this process.

Do you want to apply for an ESTA or visa for the USA? Then it is very important that your application is completed in the right way. If you don’t meet all of the requirements, for example, your application could be rejected. Would you prefer to have a worry-free application for a visa or ESTA?
