Hi All,

Im off to Toronto to visit a friend in June, we have no plans as yet but was wondering if we decieded to go on a road trip and cross the US border do i need an american visa? i know that if you fly to the US from the UK you have to complete something online is this the same if you cross the border by land.

Thanks, any advice would be great.

Danielle

Hi Danielle,

Yes you absolutely need a visa/ entry approval prior to entering.

If you are from a visa waiver country(the u.k is) and you have no criminal convictions, it is quite simple.

You therefore MUST apply for ESTA which can be done online, is fast, easy, and free. You then need to fill out a visa waiver prior to entering the u.s. This form is available onboard aircraft and at border stations.
