I was recently denied an ESTA. Wasn't given a reason although I did not violate any of the terms. I filled in the DHS TRIP (Traveller Redress Inquiry Program) form, citing a denied ESTA as my reason for redress.
What is the normative response time, specifically with using it to appeal a denied ESTA? I submitted the required documents 6 days ago and my application is still under "Pending Paperwork", apparently it takes a long time to sort through. I'm short on time and would like to make my planned trip to the US. Applying for a visa doesn’t seem like an option as wait times are too long.
