US VISIT HELP
« on: March 04, 2017, 07:59:19 AM »
I am sending my teen back to the US this summer to visit family. I know she will need travel insurance, but does she need anything else? She has availd US passport, her BRP card. We are in the UK on a settlement visa and she will be gone less than 30 days. Will she need to fill out an ESTA form? Will they give her any issues re-entering the country on her return to the UK?

No ESTA required and she should have no issues re-entering the UK.

You should check your airlines policy on unaccompanied minors.

Thank you so much for the help. I am paying extra through the airline for the unaccompanied minor service they offer.

ESTA is only for non-US citizens who are eligible to travel to the US without needing a visa

As she is a US citizen, she just shows her passport to US immigration when she enters the US, and then her passport and BRP to UK immigration when she comes back.

Looks like you have it all sorted!   :)
Do make sure that the insurance will cover her for any adventurous activities she may participate in when she is there.
