Hi everyone! I'm hoping to find out whether anyone has experience applying for an ESTA while the USA border has been closed. I am an American and my partner is from Europe, looking into visiting me in the US.
I know that there are channels open to this, but my concern is that he has to apply for an ESTA and whether it will be approved with the travel ban. Normally, I know the application for an ESTA is easy and swift, but I am hoping anyone might have information on whether they successfully received an ESTA during the last few months.
In particular, if there's a chance he could be denied, I don't want this going on his permanent file and risk being able to enter the US in the future.
Any information is sincerely greatly appreciated! Best of luck to everyone.
