Donald asks…

How much money do i need to go to USA?

I live in Eastern Europe, and in about 2 or 3 years I would like to visit the United States. I’ve been collecting money in a while, and i calculated that until i become 18 years old I will have aprox. 3500-4000 bucks. By visiting the USA, I mean that i would check out the air, and if i like it,i would like to movie out. Please tell me if that sum of money is enough or not?

Another answer is correct and the USA is geographically enormous plus incredibly diverse in almost every way. The USA tourism website is a good place to start:

Cost depends on where you go, when, for how long, and what you plan to do in the way of activities. Airline and travel sites let you combine air + hotel to give you an idea of basic costs. For example:

http://www.delta.com/

Budget US$50 per day per person for meals and minor incidental expenses.

You also need to travel around inside the USA unless you don’t venture beyond the city to which you initially fly. The minimum age to rent (hire) a car in all of the USA is 21 and most rental agencies require age 25. That means you need to travel by airline, train, or bus:

Most hotels in the USA require the primary guest to be age 21+, but not all. Verify age requirements. Before you count on staying at a hotel, and best would be to book the rooms through a real travel agency where you live (if you will be under 21 for the trip)..

The minimum age to purchase alcoholic beverages (including beer & wine) is 21 in all of the USA. If that would be important then wait until you are 21 to visit the USA.

Citizens of about 35 countries can travel to the USA for up to 90 days at a time as a tourist or for some business purposes by registering for ESTA > before < their trip begins. The cost is US$14, which is similar to the fee for the Australian ETA program.

If you are planning a long visit then DON'T schedule your departure day for the 90th day (any part of a day in the USA counts as a whole day, so if you arrive at 23:59h on the 1st and leave at 00:01h on the 10th it is 10 days in the USA). Schedule your departure not later than the 88th day as there are no (zero) provisions in the Visa Waiver Program for someone to voluntarily extend their stay. If you miss your flight due to something Immigration might consider avoidable (ex. Flat tire on the way to the airport) they may ban you from using the VWP in the future.

If you can't use the VWP then you have to apply for a visa:

Check with your health insurance to find out if it covers you in the USA and pays for medical evacuation to home (should that be necessary). If yes then take proof of coverage with you. If no or not sure then get trip medical insurance, which is cheap and sold by airlines & travel agents. The USA has wonderful medical care but it isn't free or even cheap. Please do not skimp on this as an otherwise-silly accident could turn into a crisis if you don't have medical insurance. This is a link from the US government, but the info is good for anyone traveling outside their home country:

Helen asks…

How much will it cost to travel in the USA for a year?

When I’m older I want to travel around most or all of the 50 states. I was wondering, if I spent a year in the USA, switching to a different state roughly once every week, how much it would cost? I’d probably stay in hotels. I just need a rough kind of idea.
I live in the UK, by the way.

Administrator answers:

Cost depends on where you go and when (high season verses low season, etc.).

Use travel sites like Expedia & Orbitz to price hotels, but actually book the stays on the hotel website (ex. Www.hilton.com and not Expedia).

Budget US$50 per day per person for meals and minor incidental expenses.

Every major and most minor attractions have websites you can use to estimate costs.

Remember to budget travel costs inside the USA.

The minimum age to rent a hotel room is 18 and most hotels in the USA require the primary guest to be age 21 or older.

The minimum age to purchase alcoholic beverages in all of the USA is 21.

The minimum age to rent a car is 21 and most rental agencies require age 25 or older.

Check with your health insurance to find out if it covers you in the USA and pays for medical evacuation to home (should that be necessary). If yes then take proof of coverage with you.

Registering is accomplished online, you don't need the details of your trip, and the confirmation is valid for multiple trips to the USA over two (2) years so don't wait until the last minute.

Print the confirmation – or at least record the number – and keep the information with your passport. Having a return or onward ticket leaving North America is a requirement, so have a copy of your airline itinerary at passport control.

If you are planning a long visit then DON'T schedule your departure day for the 90th day (any part of a day in the USA counts as a whole day, so if you arrive at 23:59h on the 1st and leave at 00:01h on the 10th it is 10 days in the USA).

If you miss your flight due to something Immigration might consider avoidable (ex. Flat tire on the way to the airport) they may ban you from using the VWP in the future.

Warning: You CAN apply for a regular tourist visa, which would allow you to stay 180 days. HOWEVER, visa officers at US embassies & consulates are very suspicious of people from waiver-eligible countries who apply for a regular visa with no plans except "traveling around". The application will probably be denied, and that will create HUGE problems for you (forever) when trying to visit the USA. Don't apply for a regular visa – just visit on the Visa Waiver Program.
