Re: Previous visa refusal - ESTA?

An even finer point....
Thanks for the informative posts as always, especially Rene and Ian. It's at least armed me with sufficient information to interpret CBP's frustrating Double Dutch! My own...

Re: Previous visa refusal - ESTA?

Interesting. :) Been a while since I posted on BE and before I had to bother with ESTA I mainly hung out in the Australia forum so wouldn't know of these folks you speak of.

Re: Previous visa refusal - ESTA?

Re: Previous visa refusal - ESTA?

Thanks Rene. I might bring a few things just in case.
