I am flying into Miama to meet my connecting flight to Peru, can anyone confirm if the Visa waiver is free and would I have to complete two applications, the other being my return journey back to the UK. Thanks in advance

Hi there, check the UK Gov site here for entry requirements: ... quirements

Here's the ESTA online help link: ... _1.htm#ta8

You will need to apply for the Visa Waiver for transiting the USA and the cost is USD10.00. An extract from the help page:

Do nationals or citizens of countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program require travel authorization if they are only transiting the United States in route to another country?

Eligible nationals or citizens of countries that participate in the Visa Waiver Program require either a travel authorization or a visa to transit the United States. If a traveler is only planning to transit through the United States en route to another country, when he or she completes the travel authorization application in ESTA, the traveler should enter the words "In Transit" and his or her final destination location in the address lines in the Address While In The United States field on the application.

Read through the information and then apply and pay online. You only need to do it once and it covers your return travel.

Hope this is a start!

you must do it online BEFORE you fly, or else they wont let you board. It then lasts for 2 years so you wouldnt have to do it for the home journey.
