As soon as you are granted the electronic travel authorization, you can travel to the United States within  the Visa Waiver Program, (VWP). Although ESTA authorization is mandatory it doesn’t systematically guaranteed admission to the U. S. territory. In fact, Immediately upon arrival, you will be subject to routine inspection at the border by an immigration agent who eventually may refuse admission according to an applicable Federal law.
A refusal of travel authorization does not prevent the applicant to request a visa to travel to the U. S.
All information provided by you or in your name by a designated third party must be truthful and exact. An electronic travel authorization granted maybe cancelled at any time for any reason, and particularly when new data is likely to affect your admissibility. You, therefore, open yourself to administrative action that maybe taken against you or you may find yourself subject to penalty of perjury action for knowingly and intentionally making substantially false, fictive or fraudulent declaration when submitting a travel request made by you or under your name.
