Whatever your reason for traveling, ensuring a smooth and quick entry into the U.S. is crucial to a stress-free journey.

Eligibility Requirements for Estonian Citizens

Estonian citizens are a part of the VWP, which allows them to apply for an ESTA instead of a more traditional visa. If you hold a passport from Estonia, you’re eligible to apply for an ESTA if:

  • Your trip to the U.S. is for 90 days or less.
  • The purpose of your trip is business, tourism, or transit.
  • You hold an electronic passport with a digital chip containing biometric info.

To check whether your country is part of the VWP, you can visit the VWP page on our website.
