ESTA for Danish Citizens

How to Apply for the ESTA from Denmark

Before embarking on a holiday or business trip to the United States of America, Danish nationals must first get permission from the United States government. If their trip will be 90 days (or shorter), they may apply for the ESTA. With this visa waiver system, Danish citizens in possession of a valid passport may enter the United States of America instead of having to apply for a traditional American tourist visa which costs more and will take two to three months to be processed.

Can Citizens of Denmark Travel to the USA with the ESTA?

Foreign nationals from Denmark who meet the requirements of the ESTA can travel to the USA with the ESTA instead of a traditional American tourist visa which is more expensive. In fact, if they wish to be allowed to enter the United States, they will need the ESTA.

The ESTA Application Process from Denmark

Similar to the ESTA requirements for Danish citizens, the ESTA application process is also simple. Any Danish national who wishes to apply will be prompted to complete the online ESTA application form. Luckily they will need only about ten minutes to complete this straightforward application form.

This application form will request information about the applicant’s personal particulars, travel arrangements and passport in order to run it against databases. A few security questions will also have to be answered. Lastly, in order for the ESTA application from Denmark to be processed, applicants will have to pay the set fee by means of a valid debit or credit card.

The following are a couple of pointers that will help applicants to fill out the application form and complete the application process successfully:

  • All questions marked with an asterisk (*) must be answered
  • Applicants are urged to check that all the questions have been answered correctly and truthfully (especially their passport details) before submitting the form
  • Applicants must double-check that a valid email address has been shared
  • Applicants can click on the question mark if they need more information regarding how to answer the specific field

ESTA Denmark and Passport Requirements for Entry to the USA

First and foremost, all travelers who would like to get the ESTA visa waiver for the United States should have a valid passport (with an electronic chip) as well as international medical insurance. It is important that applicants also double-check the expiry date of their passport as the passport must still be valid for at least six months after the planned arrival date.

The ESTA for Danish citizens has a few other important requirements that must be met before leaving Denmark to travel to the United States of America. Foregin nationals who have a criminal record or certain infectious diseases are automatically ineligible. Also, applicants who have been denied entry to the United States of America or have been deported from the country before will also be classified as ineligible automatically.

Do I need to Apply for the ESTA for Denmark Citizens or a US Visa for Denmark Citizens?

At the beginning of 2009, the United States Government has created the ESTA USA (which stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorization). The aim is to identify which applicants (from countries that belong to the Visa Waiver Program) are permitted to apply for the ESTA.
Before traveling to the United States of America, the ESTA US visa will automatically collect the applicant’s relevant passport details.

Denmark is one of the countries that belong to the Visa Waiver Program. Therefore, all Danish citizens who would like to travel to and enter the United States of America must apply for the ESTA.

In the misfortunate event that the ESTA application for Danish citizens has been unsuccessful, Danish citizens should apply for a B1 or B2 US tourist visa. The following are a few of the possible reasons why the ESTA could have been denied:

  • One or more answers of the Visa Waiver Program has been answered incorrectly
  • On a previous trip, the traveler stayed longer in the United States that his/her visa or ESTA allowed
  • Entry to or a visa for the United States has been denied on a previous occasion
  • An applicant has participated in some type of unauthorized employment while he/she was in the United States
  • The passport number that has been filled in has been reported as stolen or lost
