The cost of an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) – the visa most Britons use to enter the country – has risen from $14 (£11) to $21 (£17).
The document lasts for two years and is compulsory for visitors to the United States, such as Britons using British passports, traveling under the Visa Waiver Scheme.
Anyone crossing the country to go elsewhere must also take one.
