By using our website, you are automatically agreeing to the Terms and Conditions as defined below. Please read the following carefully before continuing to use our website.
1) Legal Definitions
For clarity, the following phrases and words are defined as shown below when used in the context of our Terms and Conditions:
2) What We Offer
We offer to process and review electronic travel authorization applications for travel to the USA. Please note that our company and website (immigrationcenter.net) are privately owned and operated. They are not connected with any government department, agency or bureau. During your online application process you may see notes regarding further information about the travel authorization you are applying for. When you click on the associated button you are understood to be entering into an agreement with our company.
All visitors to our website have the option of lodging their own applications directly on the official government portal without our assistance. The application cost for a US travel authorization is currently USD $ 14.00 charged directly by the US government. We will though not be able to assist with applications that we have not reviewed and processed.
3) Payment for our Products and Services
There is no charge to access our website, view our products/services or ask questions. However, we do charge for verifying, processing and/or reviewing applications. Before you start an ESTA application we will clearly tell you what the cost of our service will be. All individual USA ESTA applications processed are charged at USD $ 84.00 each, which includes tax and the US government mandatory fee of $ 14.00. There are no other fees charged. By completing the steps and clicking on the pay button, you are agreeing to the fee charged by our company.
Payment can only be made by credit card; all major brands are accepted. The cost of the service or product will be charged in U.S. dollars ($).
If you use a credit card in a currency other than U.S. dollars, your credit card provider will convert the price in U.S. dollar into your local currency using their own exchange rate. The charge will show on your statement after 4-8 days. The transaction may also incur additional fees or card-use charges levied by your credit card provider. We have no influence over such additional fees.
4) ESTA Application Processing
It is your sole responsibility to find out whether a visa is required for you to visit another country before you travel. Depending upon your nationality and personal history, you may be eligible to apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) when traveling to the USA. To obtain an ESTA you must provide certain details about yourself, your passport and your reason for visiting the country.
Our website services provide online application forms with all the questions you will need to answer in order to submit an application for ESTA. Part of our specialized service is to review the answers you provide, along with your information, before we process and submit the application on your behalf. If we need any additional information or see anything that may jeopardize your application, we will contact you by email. Please note that any verification of information will delay the processing period.
Once we have ascertained that the information you have provided is valid and complete, we submit your application to the US government department for approval. If for any reason your application cannot be submitted for processing, we will inform you and refund your payment in full.
As a part of our Service, we may edit the addresses submitted to match an international standardized address format required by the US government. The addresses edited on the Travel Authorization (ESTA) may be shown under CONTACT INFORMATION, TRAVEL INFORMATION and EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION.
To receive a response to your ESTA application can take up to 72 hours. However, we advise all travelers to begin the ESTA application process as soon as possible, and at least 7 days before your departure in order to allow time for any unforeseen delays or problems.
5) What Happens if your E-visa or ESTA Application is Denied
If for any reason we are unable to process your application, you can submit another application using a different service provider. Alternatively, you can go directly to the relevant government website and submit an application yourself. The final decision to approve or reject any ESTA or E-visa application lies entirely with each government. If your application is denied, we recommend that you get in touch with the embassy or consulate representing the country you wish to visit and they will advise you of the best way to apply for a standard visa instead. This can take longer than a regular E-visa, so time should be allowed for this possible delay.
In exceptional circumstances, a government may choose to withdraw approval for an Electronic Travel Authorization (E-visa or ESTA) even after it has been approved. In certain situations, they are authorized to change the status from 'Approved' to 'Not authorized to visit with an E-visa'. Even if your application is approved, it is only an authorization to travel. It does not guarantee entry into the country you are intending to visit. The final decision lies with the Customs and Immigration Officer when you arrive at the port of entry. We cannot take any responsibility for any losses incurred if a decision is made to decline or withdraw approval for you to enter a country. We cannot be held liable for any costs or claims resulting from such a decision.
6) Your Responsibilities
It is the sole responsibility of any traveler to comply with all requirements regarding their visit to a foreign country. You are required to answer all questions honestly and fully when making your ESTA or E-visa application. If any information is incorrect, you may not be allowed to board a flight or boat, or you may be refused entry to your intended destination country. In this instance our company cannot be held liable for any subsequent costs or inconveniences.
7) Our Contract
All orders made on our website consist of three mandatory pages with questions and payment information that must be completed by all customers. These actions can only be made by the customer who submits the order him/herself. We accept the offer to process the travel authorization once the complete application and payment are submitted. The order is accepted by us once we dispatch the email with the approved travel authorization. Purchasing our processing service indicates that the Terms and Conditions are accepted. This contract can be concluded in English or the language selected when completing the order.
