    For info, there are a number of websites which purport to provide these ESTA's for a fee of circa £40.

    Don't be fooled, go straight onto the US government site direct and only pay the $14

    Both of these figures is per person.

    :) It's a simple process you can do on line with a credit or debit card. I think it lasts 3 years. US $14.00 it's cheap enough, don't know why we don't do the same as it's a security check too. :)

    Two years ago my fishing buddy was refused a ESTA because he went fishing on
    Nubian Flats Sudan and evidently Sudan was a no go area for homeland security.
    He had to go to the USA Embassy in London had a 3 hour interview and had to pay a 100$ for a visa
    When we arrived in LA he had another 1/2 interview before he was allowed to proceed.
    and we were only in the Airport we were in transit to the Cook Islands.
    No doubt we will have the same hassle in September when we return to the Cook Islands.
