You can easily apply for an ESTA online via e-Visa.ie for € 49,95 per person. This page provides information on the price, the accepted methods of payment and whether additional costs apply, for instance if you choose our express delivery service.
What is the price of an ESTA for the USA?
The costs of your ESTA application are made up of consular fees and service fees. The consular fee covers the fee for the review of your application by the US immigration authority: the U.S. Customs & Border Protection. The service fee covers the processing of your application and is applied when you choose to apply through a commercial visa agency such as e-Visa.ie.
By submitting your ESTA application through e-Visa.ie, you can use a simple application form and rely on 24/7 assistance via the phone and email. Finally, your application will be checked by the visa specialists at e-Visa.ie, who are usually able to make corrections in time. This greatly reduces the possibility of an ESTA application being rejected or an already issued ESTA being invalidated. By doing so, we will help ensure that your travel to the USA proceeds as smoothly as possible.
Breakdown of the cost of the ESTA USA
The total price of your ESTA USA is € 49,95. This amount consists of 21 USD in consular fees and the remainder in service fees. With the current exchange rate, the service fee is € 30,55 per ESTA, including the transaction fee charged by the US immigration service and all necessary taxes. If you apply for your ESTA through e-Visa.ie, you will always pay the same total amount in euros, so you will not be disadvantaged by any unfavourable exchange rates. Additional fees will only be charged if you choose to use our express delivery service or other additional options, such as offsetting the CO₂ emissions of your trip
Ways to pay for your ESTA application
The cost of an ESTA application submitted through e-Visa.ie can be easily paid using one of the many secure online payment methods. You can pay for your ESTA application using the most commonly used credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You can also use PayPal, Google Pay or Apple Pay.
You can pay the cost of your ESTA USA using one of the following payment methods:
Additional charge for urgent applications
On average, ESTA applications are approved after 3 days. Do you need your ESTA USA sooner? You can select our express delivery service in the application form on this website. Your application will then be put at the front of the queue at e-Visa.ie and therefore submitted to the United States immigration office faster. If you choose express delivery, you will be charged an extra fee of € 17,50 per ESTA.
On average, urgent applications are approved after 60 minutes, but please note that delivery times can never be guaranteed, even in the case of an urgent application. You are therefore strongly advised to apply for your ESTA well in advance of departure and not wait until the last minute. Will you arrive in the USA within 5 days? Then you can only submit your application via this website if you select our express delivery service. For more information you can also read our page on express delivery of the ESTA USA.
Optional CO₂ compensation surcharge
Air travel, including flights to the United States of America, has harmful effects on the environment and climate. This is largely due to the emission of CO₂. The ESTA form available on e-Visa.ie gives you the possibility to easily offset part of this damage. The cost of this service option varies. The up-to-date rates are displayed on the page displayed while paying for your ESTA USA. e-Visa.ie does not make any profit from this compensation. Read more about CO₂ compensation through e-Visa.ie.
e-Visa.ie is a commercial and professional visa agency, and supports travellers in obtaining, among others, the ESTA USA. e-Visa.ie acts as an intermediary and is in no way part of any government. You can also apply for an ESTA directly with the immigration service (21 USD per ESTA, via esta.cbp.dhs.gov). However, not with our level of support. If you submit your application via e-Visa.ie, our support centre is available to you 24/7. In addition, we manually check your application and all the documents you provide before submitting it to the immigration authorities on your behalf. If we suspect any errors or omissions while doing so, we will personally contact you to ensure that your application can still be processed quickly and correctly. To use our services, you pay us 21 USD in consular fees, which we pay to the immigration service on your behalf, as well as € 30,55 in service fees as compensation for our services, including VAT. Our services have saved many travellers from major problems during their trip. Should an application be rejected despite our support and verification, we will refund the full purchase price (unless an application for a previous ESTA USA was rejected for the same traveller).
