Evisa Guide for Andorran Nationals Traveling to the USA

Embarking on a trip to the United States can be an exciting endeavor, filled with the anticipation of exploring vibrant cities, breathtaking landscapes, and rich cultural experiences. US-bound travelers from Andorra have the privilege of taking advantage of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which simplifies the process of entering the United States for tourism, business, or while in transit. The key to unlocking this streamlined entry is obtaining an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), which is mandatory for all eligible travelers under the VWP.

As an Andorran citizen, you can look forward to marveling at the vastness of the Grand Canyon, soaking up the sun on the beaches of Florida, or immersing yourself in the bustling streets of New York City. But before you pack your bags, let’s dive into everything you need to know about the ESTA and how it facilitates your US travel plans.

Understanding the ESTA for Andorran Citizens

The ESTA is an online travel authorization that assesses the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the VWP. It’s designed to enhance security by pre-screening travelers before they board an aircraft or ship bound for the US. For Andorran citizens, obtaining an ESTA is a straightforward process that involves completing an online application form, but the ease of application should not underestimate its importance. Without an approved ESTA, you will not be allowed to travel to the US under the VWP.

Eligibility Criteria for Andorran Citizens

To be eligible for an ESTA as an Andorran citizen, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Intend to stay in the United States for 90 days or less
  • Plan to travel for business, tourism (including medical purposes), or transit
  • Possess a valid e-passport with a digital chip containing biometric info
  • Arrive by a VWP-approved air or sea carrier
  • Have a return or onward ticket (if you’re entering by air or sea)
  • Not pose a security or law enforcement threat to the US

It’s also important to know that not all purposes of travel are permissible under the VWP. Employment, study, and longer stays require different types of visas. If you’re an Andorran citizen planning different travel activities, it’s vital to ensure you’re applying for the correct authorization.

Andorran citizens, as part of the VWP, can find out more about their eligibility by visiting our information on VWP Countries.

Validity and Renewal of Your ESTA

Once you have your ESTA authorization, it will be valid for two years or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. During this period, you can enter the US multiple times without needing to reapply for a new ESTA, provided each stay is for 90 days or less. Keep in mind, if any of your personal details or circumstances change, or if your passport is renewed, you’ll need to apply for a new ESTA.

Renewal of your ESTA is as straightforward as the initial application. Simply visit our application form and complete the process as you did before. Remember to apply well in advance of your intended travel dates to ensure you receive your new ESTA in time.
