Rupert has spent the past holidays with friends over a period of vacation between Arizona and Texas. At his return, Rupert had a little law problem.

Rupert knows that when he applied on-line for his Esta he answered no to a specific question, which was if he had never had any judiciary problem.

Today Rupert has the intention of going back soon in the USA. He would like to visit New York.
Since the circumstances which brought Rupert to answer to a specific question about law problems changed, in order to enter the United States with an on-line travel authorization, he must apply for a new ESTA and answer correctly to that question.

This is the procedure that the American immigration authority demands all travelers to the United States benefiting from the program travel without a visa.

Teresa is a British citizen. She lives and works in Rome and often travels to Houston for short working visits. In Rome, she met Giuliano to whom he married last April.

Teresa is very proud of her surname Charlton so after the marriage, she wished to keep her surname and add Mannino to it, her spouse’s surname.

Teresa and Giuliano want to spend their next vacation in Los Angeles.

However, Teresa won’t use her existing Esta related to her travels in Houston because that one has Teresa Charlton as a full name while today the correct name would be Teresa Charlton Mannino.

Then, she will need to request a new online authorization with her proper full name.
