ESTA på dansk

A traveler who is visiting the United States must show that they have enough funds to cover their expenses. Such as a credit card, cash, travelers’ checks, or money order. To be allowed into the United States.

CBP officers are well aware of the possibility that a traveler might have limited funds. They will decide whether the traveler is admissible based on information that supports the claim.

It is a good idea to confirm that someone has invited you to come to your home with the understanding that they will provide meals and host them. Your full name and address should be included in the letter. While this will not guarantee admission to the United States, it will assist the CBP officer in fully assessing their situation.
