ESTA for the USA for Danish citizens

If you are planning to travel from Denmark to the United States, you must prepare the ESTA visa. The ESTA system, Electronic System for Travel Authorization, is a permit that allows you to travel to the United States for 90 days that cannot be extended due to tourism, business or transit.

ESTA belongs to the Waiver Program Visa (Visa Waiver Program, VWP). At present, the United States has 39 countries listed on the program including Denmark.

The US ESTA permit is not a visa that fits in your passport or issues a card. By using its automated system, the traveler’s data is electronically linked to the passport and ESTA authorization.

Upon arrival in the United States, the system identifies the traveler and if he has a valid ESTA. The ESTA application must be made through an online ESTA form.


Requirements for ESTA application

  • Be a Danish Citizen (because Denmark is included in the Visa Waiver Program)
  • You must have the electronic passport that was issued no older than on August 28, 2006, since ESTA authorization is read through the chip. Besides, the passport must be valid for at least six months.
  • Travel with a return ticket. You will not get authorization from the ESTA visa if you do not have a return ticket to your home country, either to Denmark or to another country (remember that your trip may end up elsewhere).

Applying for ESTA USA is mandatory for citizens from countries in the Visa Waiver Program who wish to travel to the United States for stays no longer than 90 days.

Processing the ESTA can be done from the comfort of your home or office. You only need an Internet connection, your passport, an email address, and a debit or credit card. Continue reading to discover the steps to follow to complete your application.

The application process for the ESTA form for the United States

  1. Plan the trip: The US needs to know where you are going to stay during your stay in case they need to contact you. And, as we said before, you need to have the entrance and exit tickets of the country.
  2. Fill out the ESTA form for the US online: Through our website, you can fill out the ESTA request form by entering all the required information in the most reliable way possible.

Completing the ESTA form is a quick and easy process. First of all, you must know that in the  ESTA USA form, you will find several questions that help the system determine your identity.  You will have to provide the following:

  • Personal information of the candidate,
  • Passport details,
  • Reasons for your trip.

The purpose of the form is to collect in a single document all the applicant’s data for supervision upon arrival in the country. ESTA speeds up entry into the US since it is an automated system in which the traveler’s data is electronically linked to the passport and its ESTA.

Tips for getting ESTA permission for the US

  • Do the process in advance, since there may always be unforeseen events that delay processing. Therefore, I recommend you to proceed at least 3 days before your departure.
  • If you work, add that information. It will prevent the American authorities from suspecting you that you want to stay to look for work from scratch; it is something frequently asked!
  • If you are traveling in a group (friends or family), make the request together to make it easier for you to get it.
  • Bring a paper copy of the ESTA authorization with you. Although it is not necessary, it never hurts if there is an extraordinary situation and usually gives more security to oneself.
  • Having the ESTA does not assure you to pass customs, so be kind, respond according to what you put on the form and avoid any conflicts at the airport.

ESTA application process for the US will not guarantee entry to the country. Instead, it will ultimately depend on border customs control. They will make the decisions they deem appropriate depending on whether or not the tourist poses a threat to their country.
