I have a question about my trip to the USA.
I was born in the Netherlands and never changed citizenship. I've never had another passport than the Dutch one and I have never visited Iran nor lived there. I travelled to New York in 2016 on an ESTA and did not have any problems.
My question is - am I suitable for the ESTA Waiver Programme? I don't know if I hold the Iranian nationality because of my father's descent. Also, my father didn't sign me in the Iranian Consulate of the Netherlands that I was born. They only know that he has children, that's it.
UPDATE 20/02/2020: So I've mailed the CBP USA because I still was not a 100% sure. I explained them my situation as above and this is what I received.
You are eligible to apply for admission under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) if you: • Intend to enter the United States for 90 days or less for business, pleasure or transit • Have a valid passport lawfully issued to you by a Visa Waiver Program country • Arrive via a Visa Waiver Program signatory carrier • Have a return or onward ticket
Just to want to let people know if they have a similair situation like me!
