If\when enforced I'm guessing the airline may police; check_in swipe pp, names don't ESTA correspond, travel document discrepancy, which I appreciate may read lame for a missing second/other middle names, but it's US rules, chances are pax will be refused boarding and a fully completed ESTA required, with the enforced 72 hour ESTA rule that's when problems may arise. As many were/remain unaware of the updated name question it may be enforcement could begin just as quietly.

I'm passing this latest update onto family and friends (per Mole, if they do, I wonder if they won't enforce until late 2020, none know bar the US), it's a risk we'd be unwilling to take, but each to their own

Im torn now whether to just re-apply with our middle names, I think the chances of us not being allowed in are slim, but do i want to risk my 5k holiday for the sake of an extra 40. My DW says to wait till after Brexit to see what happens, im not sure what shes on about TBH as i doubt that will affect ESTAs.

From what I understand a lot of people in the US use unofficial middle names, such as their maiden name, which don't show on official documentation. Therefore the crackdown to exactly match the passport makes sense.

I've not read of anyone being refused entry for just putting their first name, however I redid mine just to be sure as $14 seemed a little amount to stop mw worrying.

The middle name requirement didnt come into force on new ESTAs until October.

I read Oct too PPM, others say they can't definitively find out, asking the TSA returns a standard 'need middle names' reply. Guess time will tell.
