Visa Waiver Program & Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)
Citizens of certain countries must apply for a regular visa, such as a B1/B2 visa to visit the United States. At the same time, there are also countries that have simplified entry regulations. These countries are members of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
If a person has a passport and the citizenship of a VWP member country, the visa for the USA can be applied for in a compact online procedure. The visa issued upon successful participation in the Visa Waiver Program is called ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization).
