If you have made a mistake while applying for your ESTA application, such as included a wrong passport number, expiry date, issuing date, or personal information, then you will need to apply for a new ESTA again. Once you obtain a new travel authorisation your previous application will become invalid. However, information related to your upcoming trip (flight and hotel information) can be updated at any time before departure.
Prior to submitting an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) application with the required payment information, you can update all application data fields except the passport and name information. Once an application is completed and submitted, you can change any of the following fields at any time:
Previously it was possible to update telephone number, carrier information and city where you are boarding as well. However now it is only possible to update the e-mail address and address while in the United States.
It is possible to review and correct the data of the applicants prior to submitting the application, including confirmation of the passport number. Prior to submitting an application with the required payment information, you can update all data fields except the passport number and passport issuing country. If an applicant made a mistake on their passport number a new application has to be submitted. The fee has to be paid for each new application submitted. Any other mistakes may be corrected or updated later.
