ESTA questions

Hi everyone,


I am a US citizen and my parents are going to visit me for the first time in the USA for a week and will want to apply for ESTA soon.


As they are not so fluent in English I was wondering if it was possible and legal for me to fill out their ESTA application and pay for it here online in the States or if they have to do this manually themselves ?



I would appreciate any help !

The ESTA application site is available in every official language of the countries that participate in the VWP. Also you now have to upload the passport picture page into the application page. That would he difficult if you don’t have the passports in front of you.

Yes,  you're allowed to do it on behalf of someone else. You can read about it in the ESTA website. I had it done for my brother about a year ago because for some very odd reason he couldn't get the website to work either from his house/internet or our parent's house/internet. Something was blocking it. So I just did it and sent him the confirmation.
