Also, I'd forgotten about the address bit being a pain, not accepting because we don't have house numbers (at least I think that's the reason), but once I googled and found solution (just keep pressing return and you will get option to override) I remembered having that issue last time too. Anyway got them all done eventually and approved. Another job done
Having had live ESTAs since they were introduced in Jan 2009 I'm far happier spending 5 minutes entering the passport data manually. Never had any issues.

But as I've said a hundred times on here. Check and double check the questions. Check and triple check the answers. It's not a race.

We couldn't upload our picture either so just did everything manually. It also said it would take 23 minutes to complete and took us over an hour to do 4 but like was said previously we triple checked everything.

I've read maybe 90% of ESTA threads on here over the past 10 years and contributed to a good few as well.

It's very sad to read on here of people who are rejected because they've answered "YES" to an obvious "NO" question. A five minute review of that page should throw that error up but you also get another opportunity to check your answers just before the payment page.

We're lucky to have a desktop in the office with a large monitor. We sit side by side and, as I said, triple check the questions and answers. Read all the ? against the questions as they keep sneaking new stuff in No TV or other distractions.

How long is it taken at the moment to get ESTA approved?
