eVisa Yhdysvaltojen vierailua varten (ESTA)
Yhdysvaltojen versio e-viisumista on nimeltään ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization), ja vaikka ESTA ei ole suoranaisesti sähköinen matkustuslupa, sillä on yhtäläisyyksiä muissa maissa käytössä olevien e-viisumien kanssa. ESTA toimii verkossa toimivana matkustuslupajärjestelmänä, joka antaa viisumivapausohjelman (VWP) maista tuleville matkustajille oikeuden vierailla Yhdysvalloissa lyhytaikaista oleskelua varten ilman perinteistä viisumia. Vastaavasti eri maiden maailmanlaajuisesti käyttöön ottamat e-viisumit helpottavat myös matkustuslupien myöntämistä verkkoalustan kautta, jolloin vierailijat voivat tulla maahan tietyissä tarkoituksissa ilman fyysistä viisumileimaa passissa. Voit tarkistaa, oletko oikeutettu ESTA-viisumiin, käyttämällä yllä olevaa hakulomaketta.
Onko ESTA eräänlainen sähköinen viisumi?
Kyllä, ESTA-ohjelmaa voidaan pitää eräänlaisena e-viisumina, mutta niissä on joitakin perustavanlaatuisia eroja. Sekä ESTA että e-viisumi ovat sähköisiä matkustuslupajärjestelmiä, jotka helpottavat matkustamista ilman perinteistä viisumileimaa passissa. Tärkein ero on kuitenkin näiden kahden järjestelmän tarkoituksessa ja laajuudessa:
ESTA: Sähköinen matkustuslupajärjestelmä koskee ainoastaan Yhdysvaltoja, ja sitä sovelletaan ainoastaan matkustajiin, jotka tulevat voimassa olevan viisumivapausohjelman piiriin kuuluvista maista.
Sähköinen viisumi (e-viisumi): Sähköinen viisumi on puolestaan laajempi käsite, ja sitä sovelletaan useissa maissa eri puolilla maailmaa. Kullakin maalla on oma e-viisumiohjelmansa, jolla on erityiset kelpoisuuskriteerit ja -vaatimukset.
ESTA: Yhdysvaltoihin lyhytaikaista oleskelua (enintään 90 päivää) varten matkailu-, liike- tai kauttakulkutarkoituksessa matkustavat henkilöt kelpoisuusmaista voivat hakea ESTA-viisumia.
Sähköinen viisumi (e-viisumi): Kukin maa määrittelee omat eVisa-kelpoisuusvaatimuksensa, jotka voivat vaihdella suuresti riippuen vierailun tarkoituksesta, hakijan kansalaisuudesta ja maan maahanmuuttopolitiikasta.
ESTA: ESTA-hyväksytyt matkustajat voivat oleskella Yhdysvalloissa enintään 90 päivää vierailua kohden.
Sähköinen viisumi (e-viisumi): Sallittu oleskelun kesto e-viisumin nojalla riippuu viisumin myöntäneen maan määräyksistä, ja se voi vaihdella muutamasta päivästä useisiin kuukausiin.
ESTA: Kun ESTA-viisumi on hyväksytty, se on yleensä voimassa kaksi vuotta tai kunnes matkustajan passi vanhenee, riippuen siitä, kumpi tulee ensin. Tänä aikana matkustaja voi tehdä useita lyhyitä vierailuja Yhdysvaltoihin.
Sähköinen viisumi (e-viisumi): Sähköisen viisumin voimassaoloaika vaihtelee huomattavasti viisumin myöntäneen maan mukaan. Jotkin e-viisumit ovat kertaluonteisia ja voimassa tietyn ajan, kun taas toiset voivat olla useampaan maahantuloon oikeuttavia ja pidempiä voimassaoloajaltaan.
