Update ESTA - Information for Citizens of the Netherlands

Before you visit the United States using an ESTA under the Visa Waiver Program, it is important for you to ensure that your ESTA information is up-to-date. If the legal information in your passport has changed, you need to apply for a new ESTA. You, however, may simply renew your ESTA without applying for a new one if either of the following two circumstance changes applies to you:

  • Your email address
  • Your address when staying in the United States changes

You can update this information by using the online ESTA update application. You must do this before you travel. You cannot update this information during the time you are in transit. Keep in mind that you may only update your ESTA for the two reasons listed above. You cannot update your ESTA if any of your legal information has changed, such as your name, gender, or country of citizenship. In those cases, you must renew your ESTA.

An ESTA allows travelers from visa waiver countries to visit the United States for 90 days per visit. An ESTA is valid for two years. Your ESTA number is sent electronically to the airline on which you will travel. It is a good idea, however, and we strongly recommend that you bring a printed copy of your ESTA with you. You might be asked to present your ESTA number before you are allowed to board your flight.
