Default Holiday in California

My hubby and I are hoping to visit some friends in California in october.
Do we need visas for a two week holiday?
If so how do we go about getting them?

Thanks.

Veronica

ESTA is good for a year.
Have a great trip and do not forget to pack snacks as airline food is not fit for human consumption.

We always take food with us on flights
Going to have fun exploring the West Coast, grand canyon, Yosemite etc.
Any suggestions for good places to see much appreciated.

Each approved ESTA application will be valid for a period of two years, such that a visitor may travel to the United States repeatedly within a two-year period without having to apply for another ESTA. Travelers whose ESTA applications are approved, but whose passports will expire in less than two years, will receive an ESTA valid until the passport’s expiration date.

Actually it's valid for 2 years - unless the passport expires first.

Also be careful to only use the official ESTA web site. There are a lot of scam artists out there taking a fee to do what you can do yourself for free.

And bring a pen, despite the ESTA scheme being up and running for ages you quite often have to fill in the old 1-94 form on the plane anyway, I have every time I have flown, most recently only back in April
