Additional Security Questions Added to the ESTA Application

June 21, 2016

Pursuant to the Secretary of Homeland Security’s announcement in February 2016 naming Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as countries of concern, the U.S. CBP has added additional security questions to the ESTA application.

Nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries who have been present in these three countries at any time on or after March 1, 2011 (with limited government/military exceptions) are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States under the VWP, absent a waiver issued in the law enforcement or national security interest of the United States.

Individuals who are no longer eligible for travel under VWP may still apply for a visa at U.S. embassies or consulates.
