Entering U.S. contact information (home address etc.) on the ESTA application

Apply for ESTA early, even before your accommodations are decided

Once you have decided to travel to the U.S., we recommend applying for ESTA well in advance. You can apply for ESTA even before deciding where you will stay or where your accommodations are while in the United States. There might be a case in which your authorization might be put on temporary hold or it might be refused if there is something wrong with the information you entered when applying for ESTA, or depending on the results of screening of the content you entered. In such a case, you might not be able to check in for your planned flight, and it even could affect the flight’s schedule. If you apply for ESTA well enough in advance, you have enough time to reapply for ESTA in case your authorization is rejected. To ensure that you can travel to and stay in the U.S. with peace of mind, we recommend applying for ESTA early so that you can find out the results as soon as possible. Once you have decided on where you will be staying or your accommodations, simply add that information to your ESTA. This page describes how to do so in detail.

The Home Address line

When applying for ESTA, you need to enter information to the Home Address line. The Home Address line refers to the hotel or residence where you will stay while in the United States. You may apply for ESTA even if your accommodations are not yet decided. In such a case, just leave the Home Address line blank when applying. The Home Address line is split into two fields. Enter the name and number of the street of where you are staying on Home Address line 1, and the name of the building on Home Address line 2.

Contact information and place of your stay while visiting the U.S.

Once you have decided where you plan to stay and/or have planned accommodations in the U.S., we recommend adding that information to your ESTA application, along with contact information where the ESTA authorized traveler can be reached for sure when it is necessary. U.S. immigration screening is becoming increasingly strict year by year for travelers whose place of stay or accommodations are undecided. This is intended mainly for security reasons and to protect American workers. Entry to the U.S. may be refused if it is suspected that the traveler intends to stay in the country or work illegally. By reporting your accommodations and/or place of stay in advance through the ESTA application form, you can enter the U.S. safely and smoothly while at the immigration screening.

The next section describes what to do when applying for ESTA in the following four cases:
1. When not registering emergency contact information
2. When registering emergency contact information
3. When you have decided on your accommodations
4. When you have not decided on your accommodations

Emergency contact information in and outside the U.S.

1. If not registering emergency contact information

Check “No” if you are not registering emergency contact information.

If not registering emergency contact information

2. If registering emergency contact information

If you are registering emergency contact information, check “Yes.” The following information will appear. Enter the information that you would like to register. You may leave the other fields blank.

If registering emergency contact information

Entering information if your accommodations have been decided

First, under travel information, answer the question “Will you be transiting to another country?” Select “No” if you will be traveling and staying in the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, or other U.S. islands.

Note

Since you do not need to enter contact information when entering the U.S. for purposes of transit to another country, the fields for entering where you will be staying will not appear. However, you still must apply for ESTA if transiting in the United States.

transiting to another country

When you select “No,” fields will be displayed in which you can enter information on where you will be staying. Even if you know where you will be staying, you may leave all of the following fields blank if you are unsure of the details. The example below shows how to enter this information in the case of the “Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills” (a Four Seasons Hotel), a popular five-star hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

enter information on where you will be staying.

In case your accommodations have not been decided

You still may apply for ESTA if you have not yet decided on your accommodations or where to stay. If you do not know or have not yet decided where to stay, you may leave all of the following fields blank.

In case your accommodations have not been decided
