U.S. CBP Now Requires EVUS Enrollments for Chinese National 10-Year Visa Holders Before Travelling to the U.S.

November 30, 2016 – On November 29, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced its implementation of the requirement for all individuals with a passport issued by the People’s Republic of China and bearing a maximum validity (10 years), B1 (visitor for business), B2 (visitor for pleasure), or combination B1/B2 visa to have a valid Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) enrollment before traveling to the United States. Therefore, as of November 29, 2016, nationals of the People’s Republic of China holding such 10-year visas will not be able to travel to the United States without valid EVUS enrollment.

Travelers can submit an EVUS enrollment at any time at www.EVUS.gov, and should do so at least 72 hours prior to traveling to the United States. EVUS enrollments are generally valid for two years or until the traveler obtains a new passport or visa.

If you would like more information about CBP’s EVUS requirement, please contact Green and Spiegel.
