    I've done the ADRs. I know there is ESTA and API to be done but are there any other acronyms I need to do now before we go? :unsure:

    And what's the difference between ESTA and API?

    ESTA is the for that replaces the green form to allow passage through immigration

    or a toothy lady from the 780's who laughs at funny shaped veg and talking dogs ( not typing)

    API is needed to allow you on a plane and seems to be required by all carriers now regardless of where you travel - we have just had to do ours for our trip to Tenerife

    Dawn, I'm not totally sure but in addition to ESTA you may still need the green form. If so they will give it to you on the plane.

    Last year we had to do both there are plenty of links to the official ESTA website, the API will be a form you fill out with Virgin or whoever you are flying with
