Travel Information Smart Traveller: The Australian Government's travel advisory and consular assistance service. Visit http://smartraveller.gov.au Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) Before boarding a United States-bound airplane or vessel, all Australian passport holders visiting or transiting in the United States under the VWP must apply for an ESTA, preferably at least 72 hours prior to travel. The cost is USD14. ESTA is a web-based system administered by the United States Government that determines the preliminary eligibility of visitors to travel under the VWP before boarding a United States-bound airplane or vessel. Travellers who do not have a valid ESTA may be denied boarding, experience delayed processing or be denied admission at a United Statesâ€™ port of entry. The official site for obtaining an ESTA is at http://www.cbp.gov/esta. To avoid imposter sites, we caution against using links in emails or from other websites to access this site. An online ESTA application must be completed for each VWP traveller, including accompanied or unaccompanied children. A third party, such as a relative or travel agent, is permitted to submit an ESTA application on behalf of a VWP traveller. Passport https://www.passports.gov.au Australian passports are valid for travel into and out of Australia regardless of the length of remaining validity. An Australian passport remains valid until the expiry date. However it is the right of any country to control entry into their borders and this is usually done via visas or ensuring sufficient validity remains on the visitorâ€™s travel document. Entry requirements are decided by foreign governments and are not something that the Australian Government can influence. You need to ensure that your passport has adequate validity to meet the entry requirements of the countries you intend to visit (or transit). Some countries require travellers to have at least six months validity remaining on their passports beyond the period of intended stay, and immigration authorities may refuse entry if you arrive with less than this. Airlines and passenger shipping lines may refuse to carry you if your passport has inadequate validity. Before travel you should contact the Embassy, High Commission or Consular representative of all the countries you will be travelling to identify each countryâ€™s passport validity requirements. If you are unsure, it is safest to renew your passport prior to travelling. Embassy of the United States of America in Australia United States Department of State Visa Information
