US visa's urgent deadline

ESTA, the United States visa waiver programme, becomes chargeable (US$14) next Wednesday (8 September).  The form takes about two minutes to complete and the response can be virtually by return.  Users need to have their passport details handy and once approved is valid for two years.  Readers should be aware that the previously compulsory details of port of entry and US address are not mandatory and do not need to be completed.  Use the official web site noted here and not unofficial service agents who will take money off you to do the same job.  You need an ESTA even if just passing through, say on the way to New Zealand or South America. https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov
