I know there are similar topics (linked below) but I want to settle this once and for all.
I will be travelling to the US later this year. I have two passports (UK/Indonesian), and the UK one has my English surname and the Indonesian one has my Indonesian surname. For most intents and purposes I am two separate people.
I live in the UK and will travel to the US on the UK passport which is of course included in the VWP programme.
- Do I need to declare my alias (other surname) and my second nationality on the ESTA form? This link, this one and this one say no. However, people generally say it's best to be truthful on the form to avoid complications later on.
- Would not declaring the second identity count as lying on the form?
I am somewhat concerned as Indonesia doesn't have the best international reputation. I wouldn't want it to affect my ESTA chances.
