I go to México in some time, and my fly tickets first I go from Peru to the US, because of that I require a visa to enter US.
In my country I can apply for VWP, but I'm a little scared of getting denied, while I'm in México it is possible that I would make a short tourism travel to US but in the ESTA form there is the following question.
Indicate whether your travel to the US is occurring in transit to another country by selecting yes or no. Answering this question is required to complete your application.
If I choose yes, definitely I can not enter US?
What scare me a little is, if I select no and then my request is denied, getting the visa would be a little complicated.
