What kind of specifications must the computer applying for ESTA have?

All you need to complete an ESTA form is a computer supporting any 128-bit browser. All the main browsers such as Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and opera cover this demand and offer the possibility to request the travel authorization for the US on-line.

Moreover, you will have to verify if the browser used accepts cookies and is compatible with Java Script. You also need to remember that public computers can have different configurations in this regard.

In general, we can summarize for the less expert in computers that an Internet connection and a computer even with the most simple configurations are enough to apply for an Esta online.
Also on a mobile device, such as smart phone or tablets.

We also recommend to have a printer available for printing a copy of the travel authorization and keep it with the other documents (passport, air tickets)
