USA: Expedited Travel eVisa: Rapid ESTA Process for Chilean Travelers

For Chilean citizens dreaming of visiting the United States, whether to explore the vibrant city life, embark on a road-trip across the scenic landscapes, or engage in business activities, the travel authorization process has been greatly simplified thanks to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). As a part of the VWP, Chileans are provided with the convenience of applying for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) instead of a traditional visa. This streamlines the entry process but what if you’re in a hurry? Thankfully, there’s a solution for expedited processing that ensures you won’t miss out on your travel plans.

Imagine experiencing the grandiosity of the Grand Canyon, the hustle and bustle of Times Square, or the convivial atmosphere of a Southern barbecue—all without the extensive wait times usually associated with visa applications. With an eye to facilitating such experiences, we’ve designed a process that makes obtaining expedited travel authorization both straightforward and quick.

Understanding the ESTA for Chilean Citizens

The ESTA is not a visa but rather a travel authorization that allows travelers from VWP countries, like Chile, to visit the United States for tourism, business, or while in transit for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa. It simplifies the pre-travel administrative process and can be easily obtained online.

To be eligible for an ESTA, you must meet certain criteria such as:

  • Holding a passport from a VWP country
  • Planning to stay in the United States for 90 days or less
  • Traveling for tourism, business, or while in transit
  • Arriving by air or sea

It is important to note that an ESTA approval does not guarantee entry into the United States, as the final admission is determined by Customs and Border Protection officers at the port of entry.
