It sounds great. So in theory as I've done ESTA before and had no issues entering the USA, I should be able to do this and make the return home a bit more tolerable?

You can see if you're eligible by entering your details in the app under the VWP category.

Just wait till everybody realises it exists and uses it. The queues for app users will be like regular CBP queues now!

My experience when trying to use the app at HNL & IAH recently was the agent just advised me to use the normal queue which only had a handful of people in front anyway so I was out within a few minutes, but plan to use this at LAX later this year. Might come in handy then.

Have downloaded the app (thanks for the tip!).

Will test at IAH tomorrow and report here.
