To travel to the United States there are three different kinds of visa: work, study, and tourism. We will, of course, focus on the touristic visa.
British and Australian Citizens
The Visa Waiver Programme allows Australian and British citizens to visit the U.S.A. for 90 days. Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay.
If you arrive by air or by sea, you will be asked to fill out the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation or ESTA. online at least 72 hours before traveling.
