The US has a really strict visa policy, but tourists, including Chileans, are permitted up to 90 days of vacation in the country. The Visa Waiver Program allows the citizens of 38 countries the possibility of getting a tourist visa through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization, or US ESTA for short. iVisa can help Chileans apply for a visa using an online application system and have it as quickly as 30 minutes.

What do Chileans need?

Applying for a visa is a lot accessible when using iVisa. Of course, Chileans need to make a small effort by simply providing some information and filling in a form. As for the first part, below is the list of what needs to be provided:

  • Passport – one of the requirements is a valid passport. However, not just any kind of passport. You need an electronic passport with a digital chip that contains biometric information.

  • E-mail address – even though your visa will be linked to your passport electronically, you still need a copy to present at the immigration office once you arrive in the US. iVisa will send you a copy via e-mail in PDF format. Remember to print it out before your flight.

  • Means of payment – the payment for your visa and iVisa’s services is made before submitting the application. You can use multiple methods such as credit/debit card or a PayPal account.

How Chileans apply for a US ESTA?

You will go through a very simple application process if you use the services provided by iVisa. The form is easy to comprehend and it only takes about 10 minutes to be completed. If you need any assistance, iVisa also provides an amazing support service that is ready to take your call 24/7.

The form is divided into three steps:

  1. The first step requires personal information such as name, address, e-mail, passport info, and so on. Chileans must also select a processing time for the application. iVisa provides three options to satisfy everyone’s needs and budget. They are as follows:

    • Standard processing – choosing this option means that your request will be processed within just 24 hours for only USD 29.00.

    • Rush processing – this time your US eVisa will be ready within just 4 hours. You need to pay USD 59.00 for it.

    • Super Rush processing – if you want your visa right away, you can opt for this timeframe and have your application processed within 30 minutes for USD 79.00.

  2. The second step of the application will be about payment and revision. Chileans can make the payment using one of the available methods. As for the revision, always remember that it is important for the provided information to be 100 % correct. There is little time for you to make corrections since the processing time is not long. As such, revision is impossible to do so after your visa is ready. Make sure that all the information you put in does not have spelling mistakes.

  3. Lastly, Chileans will be required to provide some additional documentation and answer a set of personal questions. The required documents may vary from case to case. As an example, you need to upload more documents if you travel with a minor. Chileans can just submit the application and wait for it to arrive via e-mail inbox after completing the steps. It could not get any simpler than that.

The US ESTA is valid for 2 years after issued and provides a maximum 90 days Per Entry stay in the US. As for the number of entries, Chileans are privileged with Multiple Entry. The US ESTA also grants access to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
