Visitors To US Now Required To Register Online

Starting today, visitors to the US from 35 visa-waiver countries will
be required to register online with the Department of Homeland
Security in advance. The DHS is asking people to go online for the
ESTA program 72 hours before traveling, but they can register any
amount of time ahead. Approval, once granted, is good for 2 years. DHS
says that most applications are approved in 4 seconds. If an
application is rejected, the traveler will have to go to a US embassy
and get a visa. CNet reports that information from applications will
be retained for 12 years, and eventually up to 75 years.
