Renewing Your ESTA Visa if You Are a Danish Citizen

An ESTA or travel authorization is normally valid for 2 years. Within this period you can visit the United States multiple times through the Visa Waiver Program. However, there are a several scenarios which require you to renew or apply again for a new travel authorization. Examples include a change in your name, gender, citizenship, or if you obtain a new passport. Once you renew your ESTA and obtain a new travel authorization, the existing one will become obsolete and not valid for travel. You can only have one valid travel authorization at any given time linked to your passport. Each person traveling need to have his or her own valid travel authorization including children and babies.
