"Better than the Embassy, but..... Very frustrating when I wanted to get information on my order, and since I am within 2 weeks of leaving I needed to know where I stood. No phone numbers that worked- at the 303 number, all I got was an answering device. Finally, someone started to chat. Told me I still had to send in photos of the passports- which I had included in the original application. Supposedly I had been sent an e-mail telling me this-- that I had never received. Finally got it sorted but had to confirm that the second set of photos of the passports had been received. A toll free number would help get things like this sorted a whole lot quicker. I rated this acceptable because I ultimately got the Visas in time."06-04-2022 06:11:51 am

"VISA Good Rxperience For my first trip to USA I decided to try visa on line and found it easy and efficient to use. While the uploading of photos and passport information took a bit of time, this was more to do with my limited IT awareness. However the guidance from estavisa was excellent including a short film and now I can scan and upload documents much more quickly All in all a very helpful system and my visa arrived within 48 hours - just look forward to a much more speedy arrival through customs at Nsirobi thanks to esta visa Ian Elliott"06-04-2022 05:45:48 am
