My wife has Ushers Syndrome, partially deaf, partlally blind, works full time and is very independent. We planned to go to San Fransico in Sept. Here's the problem, on the ESTA form, Eligibility Q1 seems to put disabled travellers in with the mentally ill, drug addicts and so on. We checked with our travel agent, American Holidays and they said that if she was to click 'yes' the authorities may not allow her to travel, click no and she would be lying to them. We've both been to the USA before and never encountered what looks like to me blatant discrimination.
Tried contacting the authorities for confirmation but no answer. If anyone has any advice or clarification on this point we would be grateful.
