    Odd email from DHS about our ESTAS

    Hi All.

    Three of us travelling to Florida in May. Had already sorted ESTAs. Two expire in Nov 2019 and one expires in October 2018.

    Email received this morning says:
    ATTENTION! The travel authorization submitted on July 2, 2016 via ESTA will expire within the next 30 days. It is not possible to extend or renew a current ESTA travel authorization. You will need to apply for a new ESTA travel authorization. Please reapply at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov if travel to the United States is intended in the near future. If there are 30 or more days left on the old authorization you will receive a warning message during the application and be asked if you wish to proceed.

    No name is indicated on the email

    Checked on official DHS ESTA site and all of our application expiry dates are confirmed as shown on line 1 above ??? (No connection I can see to July 2016 date in their email).

    Not sure whether to contact them or assume the email refers to a previous application, now superceded as I don't always apply for all of ours on same date? I have printed off the valid authorizations in case asked for at the airport. Anybody else had this happen please?

    I've had the same email in the past with no name.
    Date of expiry was correct though.

    Thanks Noodler. Just received a second email from them this afternoon so can only presume that they apply to past applications that have not run their course yet. I must have renewed before the other ones ran out to ensure we were covered. Will take the up to date printouts with us just to be on the safe side.

    Make sure your passport isn't due to expire because even though you have a 2 year ESTA it only lasts as long as your passport does!

    Not been for a while so having to check everything before we go this time.

    Thanks to all who replied. Our passports are valid for many years yet (just renewed early 2017) so the ESTA letters are still a mystery.??

    Great to hear from you Mary & Colin. Hope to see you there. (If we get let in of course!! )
