This question already has an answer here:
I have read conflicting information and can't seem to find the right number online to call.
I am a UK citizen visiting the US on an ESTA due to expire on 2nd April. I would like to stay until the 12th as I have a friend coming out to visit.
If I fly to the Bahamas, Abaco Islands for 4 nights say on the 31st March to return to Florida around the 2nd April will that reset my ESTA and allow me to stay essentially for another 90 days although I actually only want another 9?
