OP

I didn't realise from your first post that you had to renew your passport as well otherwise my advice would have been identical.

New passport = new ESTA notwithstanding when the current ESTA expires.

I do the same...I have never considered them not being approved! I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't be?

Hi Gemma, oft travellers are unaware why ESTA is denied, per Dibbers who, unknowingly, fell victim to the 2012 Sanford blip, when they next made ESTA application, too close to travel, they were unable to resolve and lost their holidays with no recompense, the DHS do not accept liability and travel insurance doesn't cover travel doc issues. In my instance, after cira 20 years of US travel, I was mistakenly flagged as a 61 day over-stayer.

Thanks for this info Chris...will submit them earlier this time as ours are due for renewal before our trip in July... naively, I hadn't thought about an instance of a computer glitch! I guess an easy assumption to make is that you answer the questions, have no criminal record, haven't outstayed your welcome on previous trips, therefore it should be approved no problem!

On a Facebook group that I am on, someones dad was denied an ESTA, despite travelling on one twice a year since they came out. He had the same name and almost the same date of birth as a person flagged as a no flight. He had to apply for a visa, luckily he always applied for an ESTA six months before travelling so it was all sorted for his trip. This isnt the only person that I have heard of being denied an ESTA despite having one previously.

ESTA is usually a breeze for the majority of travellers Gemma - many say it was easier when travellers completed the I94 green card on the aircraft, if there was any issues at least the traveller was in immigration and Secondary interview may resolve.

It never crossed my mind I could be inadvertently flagged as an over-stayer, but to err is human. I was oblivious to my over-stay flag, my guess, as a B2 visa holder, I was allowed to travel and only became aware once in Secondary interview. The Secondary Supervisor was superb and resolved within minutes, phew!

Others have had ESTA denial connected to same name on the 'no fly' list, hence why the DHS update for ESTA applicants to now add 'names per passport' may help to reduce that issue. You'll see that update, diagram/text alongside the name question, when you go to complete ESTA
