Slightly worrying “personal information”

  • Terwri

    While updating my covid docs and making the attestation for the US authorities, for a flight tomorrow, I noticed a summary at top of the form.
    Date of birth

    Nationality: Iran

    Im not Iranian and never have been. I went back rechecked and reloaded my personal info, passport number, nationality etc. back to the covid upload and there it is again.
    Should I worry about this as Im travelling on an Esta?


    That is odd, sounds like an IT issue? Have you tried amending it on another device – I would not recommend trying to explain this to US immigration on arrival?!

    Is this via or VeriFly? VeriFly are very responsive to enquiries IME, though I appreciate you haven’t got an awful lot of time before you travel.
    If all else fails, delete the application and start again, annoying though it will be. We had to do this once as my photo somehow got uploaded to my son’s record!

    My OH once ticked “Uganda” on our ESTA forms instead of “United Kingdom” but as I recall we were able to change it with no issues.


    BA IT glitch is all I can think. My esta is fine no issues. I deleted my personal info on my BA account and went back and still it said iran.
