American officials remind people that the application fee for the Electronic
System for Travel Authorization, or E-S-T-A, to the United States only costs
14 U.S. dollars.
That’s the equivalent of 420 NT.
The American Institute in Taiwan says that some travel agencies have set up
fake E-S-T-A websites and charge 80 or 90 dollars for the authorization.
A-I-T spokewoman Amanda Mansour says everyone can apply for the authorization
on the official A-I-T website and there’s no need to do so via a third party.
She also stresses that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s E-S-T-A web
address contains g-o-v, meaning it is an official government site. [SOURCE]
