DHS/USCBP RIN: 1651-AA83 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA): Fee for Use of the System 
Abstract: Under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations, nonimmigrant aliens who wish to enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Program at air or sea ports of entry must obtain a travel authorization electronically through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) from Customs and Border Protection prior to departing for the United States. This rule amends the DHS regulations to require ESTA applicants to pay a fee. The fee is authorized by section 711 of the Implementing the Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (9/11 Act) and mandated by the Travel Promotion Act and consists of the sum of $10 per travel authorization and an amount that will at least ensure recovery of the full costs of providing and administering the ESTA system. This document also announces the amount of the fee.
