If I’ve already obtained an ESTA authorization, Shall I request an updated one under the new online form?

Because of recent events on the world stage, such as the spread of the Ebola epidemic and a renewed threat of terrorism in the Middle East, the U.S immigration authorities have implemented a new online form for requesting ESTA. This new form is only valid for new ESTA requests.

In fact, the previously approved ESTA authorizations remain valid until they expire.

Once expired, the traveler must apply for a new ESTA using the new online form.

So, if you have a valid ESTA authorization (issued less than 2 years ago and the passport associated with it, has not expired), feel free to travel to the U.S. You will not encounter any issue.
