Hey all

went to get an ESTA for my wife but after checking it looks like we don't need one if I am on an L1 and he is on an L2 VISA right?

Thanks,

no they don't need one.
FYI It may be that your airline won't let you check in online though, without one , so get to the airport in plenty of time

I might be helpful to think of an ESTA as the functional equivalent of a "visa." Technically speaking it does not fit within the statutory definition of a visa because it is not issued by a consular officer. However, like a "visa" it is an advance authorization to come to the port of entry and apply for admission.

So, one with a non-immigrant "visa" is not in need for any other US government advance permission to come to the US.
