Visa Information USA (Alaska)

Please read the important Visa information below. You will require a USA Visa if your holiday includes an Alaskan Cruise or you have a flight connection via the USA.

This information is based on UK passport holders only.

ESTA is an electronic travel authorization linked to your passport, allowing you to travel to the USA for short stays up to six months.

Apply for ESTA at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta for $21.

Most applications are approved within minutes, but it may take considerably longer if you need to submit documents or are required to obtain a US Visa in person from a US Embassy.

ESTA is valid for up to two years or until your passport expires which ever comes first and you can apply for it as many times as you need.You do not need to renew your ESTA if you have a change or error in employment, home address, work address, phone number, email address, travel itinerary, transit status, travel address, or in the point of contact information does not require that a new application be submitted, or that an existing application be updated. However, please have the correct information readily available, as it may be requested during the inspection process.

If you've ever reported your passport as lost or stolen, don't use it for travel to the USA.

If you have any queries, contact My Canada Trips at 0808 253 8142 or visit https://uk.usembassy.gov/ for more information.

It is the responsibility of each passenger in your party to apply for an ESTA . Failure to do so would lead to non-entry to the USA (Alaska). My Canada Trips cannot be held liable in any way for non-compliance or refused entry to the USA (Alaska).
