An ESTA is not a physical object, it is an electronic record. From the ESTA FAQ: Do I need to bring a printout or digital copy of my travel authorization to the airport? No. DHS will be able to communicate a traveler's ESTA status to the carriers. However, DHS recommends that travelers print out the travel authorization application response in order ...

For the British islands (Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, etc), you are supposed to carry ID but it is not usually checked. There is no formal border control when arriving from or going to the UK. It's like a domestic flight. I usually bring a driving licence in my wallet in case anyone asks, but I've never been asked for it. Gibraltar has formal entrance ...

Right, so also had this problem. Called up and the advisor on the phone told me to do another one.

I have phoned them about this a couple of times and they are aware of the ...

Since this seems to a date problem, check if you have entered the dates in the expected format: UK: TT/MM/YYYY US: MM/TT/YYYY 31/01/2027 would be a valid UK date, but an invalid US date Dialogs with Combo-Boxes, where the month must be selected, won't have this problem. Care should also be taken to insure that the date of birth is correctly given: 07/...

This is a badly formed question because your passport expiry is the same as the Brexit crash-out date! So you are only asking about 2 use cases: a) Britain still in EU, or b) passport is expired. Black-boxing Traveler's link: After a crash-out Brexit, you cannot travel on an expired passport end of inquiry. Anti-DV Disclaimer: I'm referring to a UK ...

As I understand it. Under the brexit deals that were negotiated by the government but not passed by Parliament there is supposed to be a transition period lasting at least until the end of 2020. Freedom of movement would continue during this transition period. So you would be ok to travel in February on your existing passport. On the other hand, in the ...
