Not unpopular, just unnecessary.

If an ESTA is valid for the duration of the stay (plus a few days extra in case any delay leaving etc) then that is sufficient.

Having a new one would be no different to the original one. So not foolish in the slightest IMO.

They could have had a valid one for 2 full years and had an issue locating it and be in the same predicament.

So pleased that you are sorted and wish you the most fantastic holiday.

I think more than anything, its not why this happened or if you could have avoided it, what has shone through for me is your incredible mental strength and resolve to get this sorted in the most efficient manner.

Hats off to you, there are many who would have crumbled given such a mountain to climb.

You are a true credit to our dibber community.

Well done and more hugs

Just to clarify. An ESTA only needs to be valid on the day of entry to USA, not for the duration of stay.

My partner would have been exactly the same.

What a day you have had, so stressful and you all dealt with it so well. We work so hard and look forward to our holidays, particularly if it isn't a regular occurance 🤣. I sincerely hope you all have an extra amazing time, I have learnt a lot from this thread so thank you for that. Wine, dinner, wine... 😂😂

Credit card all sorted.

Spoken to Aviva my insurance who were incredibly helpful and said to get the clarification from esta that I could have travelled with the esta which was in date and to still push with Norwegian. X
We have friends got delayed two full days. They just turned up at Alamo and they didn't even bat an eyelid. No charge or anything.
I suspect the charge is the HA broker getting the arm in.

I checked and we only needed an esta for the day of travel. Its not like a passport where you need 3 months left on your passport. This was something I did check.

The OP saying I was foolish doesnt really help the situation.
I had enough esta left and not sure if we will visit the US in the next 2 years so why reapply when there was absolutely no need to.
