    Default Entering a U.S. Territory Without ESTA

    According to a website I came across to, you cannot enter Puerto Rico directly with an Australian Passport. I find this information quite unusual but I have yet to confirm this anywhere else. The information on this website says that you can only enter Puerto Rico with an Australian Passport and without a visa esta by going to mainland USA first. I also checked other sources and it seems like the same entry laws apply for Puerto Rico. I’m planning to visit Puerto Rico from the Dominican Republic without having to land on mainland US first. Will someone please help me by providing official information with regards to the similarity between traveling from Puerto Rico and traveling to the mainland USA?

    Default Re: Entering a U.S. Territory Without ESTA

    Australia is a visa waiver program (VWP) country, but even though you don't need a visa to enter the U.S. on an Australian passport you must register through ESTA. So whether you plan to go to the mainland first or directly to Puerto Rico, you will register through ESTA.
