Esta update?

I am travelling to Vegas on may 9th for a week. , this is my 2nd visit I also went April 2011.

I understand that the esta lasts for 2 years but am unsure how to change the destination address and the flight details on my previous esta?

Can anyone shed any light?

If you go to the main ESTA website with the confirmation number, your date or birth and passport number you'll be able to log in and change the stuff you want.

But you don't need to. These details are not mandatory and will not affect you getting into the country.

Got to https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/ and if you look at the text in the green box, the right hand column is what you want 'Update or Check the Status of a Previously Submitted Authorization to Travel to the United States'. You need your ESTA number or just your passport details and then you will be able to update your details.

I thought ESTA only lasted a year? Just got mine for this trip and it expires next year.

"I thought ESTA only lasted a year? Just got mine for this trip and it expires next year."

The ESTA lasts for 2 years or until your passport expires whichever is earlier.

Bugger, I didn't need to do mine again then!

Will it matter if I had one and did a new one? i.e. is 2 ESTAs a problem?

Any new application invalidates the older ESTA. Any which way yours was only going to last until your passport runs out.

Why did you do another application if you already had a valid ESTA?
