I have booked a flight to NYC in February, where I am due to spend 2 weeks. After this, I intend to get the bus from NYC to Toronto and from there spend 2 months travelling in Canada, before returning to the USA for 2 months to travel down the West Coast.
When I booked my flights, I was unaware of the ESTA complications. I'm now aware it would have been wiser to start in Canada, not New York, but unfortunately, I cannot change my tickets.
Would the 90-day 'clock' start ticking as soon as I enter New York and continue to do so even in Canada? Or could the ESTA be frozen or even reset, seeing as I'm only spending two weeks in USA and 2 months in Canada?
Would it be more sensible to fly from NYC to Toronto (so it's clearer I'll be out of the USA after 2 weeks?
