Visa for USA

Hey everyone...happy Friday to you all!
So can I ask what’s the easiest and best place to get the visa process under way? Not going until 2021 but want to get planning!

Are you sure you need a full visa, or would the much easier ESTA (travel authority) be good enough for you?

Assuming you have a UK passport and have a clean criminal record you should be ok with an ESTA but you should double check

Do you need a visa? Most people travel on an Esta. It allows you to travel to the US and is currently $14 per person.

OP. Looking at your location do you have a British Passport that says British Citizen?

The citizen ship question is the pertinent one...

If it takes a trip to the embassy before visiting the states that's a proper pain in the backside.

Quote from the CBP ESTA page:

"*British citizens only with the unrestricted right of permanent abode in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man."

So I would assume that it has to be a Visa.

unrestricted right of permanent abode means they are free to live in the Country, if they so wish. Therefore, a Visa would not be required.

But OP is posting from the Falkland Islands, which is NOT one of the countries listed -
"England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man"

so a visa WOULD be needed from the way I understand the quote.

I think what it means is, if the OP is able to live in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, unrestricted, (ie because they are a British Citizen) then they are able to travel on an Esta.

The British overseas territories act 2002 (at least according to wikipedia!) grants Falkland Islanders the right to reside in the UK and apply for a passport with British citizen on it.
The ESTA process has a field for both residence and place of Birth...there's no saying the US won't refuse to grant an ESTA based on this information, but considering the citizenship question and the debate above, it seems pretty straightforward that OP can qualify under ESTA. At least that's how I see it.
