VISA


Travelers that are not authorized for ESTA have to apply for a visa in any case. You can apply for a visa in Berlin, Frankfurt or Munich. The application must be in person at the US Consular Section.

A second pass (without entry stamp of the above mentioned countries) does not solve the problem, because it can not be excluded that airlines forward the passenger data to the Homeland Security Ministry of the USA. The visa application is made electronically via: https://de.usembassy.gov/de/ 

An appointment must be made.
