Travelling to America soon, and I have to go through ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) to enter without a visa. Joy. I quote:
On March 4, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Travel Promotion Act (TPA) of 2009, Pub. L. No. 111-145. The Act directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish a fee for the use of the ESTA system, comprised of $10.00 for each VWP applicant receiving authorization to travel to the United States and $4.00 for the processing of the ESTA application.
Apparently the word “promotion” means something different in America.
