US visa process (from Mexico):

NB: If you’re a European Union citizen and only wish to visit the United States for up to three months, apply online for a US visa via the ESTA programme, it costs $14 US and will hopefully be approved within 24 hours.

The process outlined below is for a EU citizen wishing to visit the US on up to a ten-year multiple entry visa, known as a Tourist B2 visa:

  1. Hi guys. Just a quick note on “US Visa Process (from Mexico)”. All EU citizens should be able to pitch up at the US border with Mexico and enter on a Visa-Waiver, good for 3 months and costs nothing. This is what we did in June 2015 and we were processed there and then (5 minutes). No need for an ESTA. All the best and safe riding.
