The US Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) allows most British passport holders to stay in the USA for up to 90 days without a visa. If you have an e-Passport, you’re eligible for visa-free travel to the USA (a symbol on the front of the passport shows you if it’s an e-Passport). If not, you’ll need to apply for a visa via the US embassy.
You also need to register with the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). This can be done online. Enter some basic personal information and pay a fee of US$14 and you are authorised to travel. ESTA authorisation typically remains valid for two years.
