I applied for an ESTA in November and everything was approved, so right now I am kind of freaking out since I was re-reading a few questions again. Long story short, I was an intern with a J1 visa from May 2015 until May 2016. I left the US on time and never had any overstays etc.
So this question came up on the ESTA application:
Have you ever been issued a passport or national identity card for travel by any other country?
Well I had a New York State ID Card but I could not have traveled somewhere else with. I honestly did not think about that. But I guess because it says a NATIONAL ID CARD, I only had a New York STATE ID Card. So I should be fine? Thank you so much for you help.
