I’ve seen similar questions but not sure if this has been answered. My husband is a U.K. national. We lived in the US for 6 years then due to my work, no longer reside in the US. We now reside in the U.K. as we knew my work wouldn’t allow us to to fully live in the states, my husband voluntarily abandoned his green card. We submitted the form i407 and the actual green card itself. We’ve received no confirmation or anything.now my question is we would like to visit my family in the states as due to Covid we’ve not seen any of my family in almost 2 years. Will my husband be able to use ESTA to enter? We tried to get an ESTA but it was not authorised. I can only assume this was due to his green card abandonment not fully being processed? Will future travel to the US be a problem? I’m a US citizen and our two children are also US citizens. Any info appreciated.

Since your husband has no ESTA, he cannot use ESTA to travel to the US. The proper thing to do if ESTA authorization is denied is to apply for a B visa. That's difficult to do at the moment, but it's the only option.
