Check ESTA Status Or Update ESTA

Visitors to the United States can check ESTA status online, and can update certain information on their travel authorization if needed. Check ESTA status or update by clicking on the button that relates to your specific request.

If you have made a mistake while applying for your ESTA application (such as typing a wrong passport number, expiry date, issuing date or name) then you will need to re-apply for a new ESTA. In this situation your original application will become invalid once the new one is submitted. However, certain types of information can be updated after the application has been approved, such as your email address and address when staying in the US.

What ESTA information can you update or change?

Prior to submitting an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) application with the required payment information, you can update all application data fields except the passport related information. Once an application is completed and submitted with all the required payment information, you can change any one of the following fields:

  • E-mail address
  • Address while in the United States

How to correct an ESTA mistake?

It is possible to review, renew and correct the data of an application prior to submission. However, once an application is approved and your travel authorization is issued, you can only update your address while in the United States. If an applicant made a mistake related to passport details, a new application has to be submitted and the application fee has to be paid again. Any other mistakes may be corrected or updated by using the update function.
