For Irish citizens, the application process for a visa waiver through ESTA is easy. Travelers simply need to complete the ESTA online application form, which only takes a few minutes to fill in.
When completing the form, applicants will need to supply the following data:
- Details of a valid Irish passport
- Email address
- Home address and phone number
- Emergency contact phone and email
The form also contains questions related to security and health, which you are required to complete. Your responses will be vetted by the US Department of Homeland Security to determine whether you can enter the United States without a visa.
Applicants may also be asked to provide additional supplementary data, including contact details for the time they will be in the United States, or of their employer in their country of residence.
When completing the application form, it is essential to make sure all the information provided is correct and matches the details of the applicant’s passport. This is because any incorrect data or small errors may result in delays in processing the ESTA, or even a denial of the visa waiver.
