Hi there - I have done a bit of a search and can't really find any answers to the following so I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out.

Ms Chooms and I traveled to the USA (Hawaii) last March. We entered the US under the VWP which we are eligible for.

We are heading to mainland USA next month and it clicked that I should probably check out our visa status.

Well, after all the searching, I still can't determine if I need to update our existing visas with the new flights and hotel details (the existing visas have our Hawaii details). All other details have not changed and we have the same passports.

The FAQs on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website says the following:

Q: Does a traveler ever need to reapply for travel authorization through ESTA?

A:
Yes, a new travel authorization via ESTA is required when: (1) the traveler is issued a new passport; (2) the traveler changes his or her name; (3) the traveler changes his or her gender; (4) the traveler’s country of citizenship changes; or (5) the circumstances underlying the traveler’s previous responses to any of the ESTA application questions requiring a “yes” or “no” response have changed.
ESTA approvals are typically granted for a two–year period or until the applicant’s passport expires, whichever is sooner. ESTA provides validity dates upon approval of the application. Therefore, a traveler must apply for a new ESTA when the prior ESTA approval or passport expires. The associated fee will be charged for each new application submitted.
I'm interpreting this to read I don't need to change the info, but I'm hoping to hear from others if this is the case or not? Will they just enter the new info in the systems at the airport?

Thanks in advance for your help.

As long as your ESTA is current there is no need to update any info after the first entry.
