My father's ESTA was cancelled after he overstayed with 3 months due to Covid.
It was extended every 30 days because his flight was cancelled and there were no flights to Europe in that period of time, that's why they always approved the requested extensions.
When I checked his ESTA status after I received an email that it has been changed I saw his ESTA was cancelled and he should apply for a Visa.
What is the best thing to do?
He didn't do anything illegal, he just couldn't leave the country due to Covid. My father is old and I don't want him to go through the stress related with applying for a visa, ESTA was so easy and he never would stay longer than 3 months, no need for a visa which would allow him to stay for 6 months. Thank you very much for your help.
