ESTA Travel Authorization

Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)

Beginning January 12, 2009, all nationals and citizens of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries will be required by law to obtain a travel authorization prior to initiating travel to the United States under the VWP. Luxembourg is a VWP country and citizens from Luxembourg who do not have a visa or permanent residency card (green card) must obtain the ESTA authorization online before traveling to the United States.
