Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) Website Now Open to Chinese Travelers for Enrollment

The EVUS website is now open to the public for enrollment. As of November 29, all Chinese citizens carrying maximum validity (10-year) B1/B2, B1, and B2 visas in passports issued by the People’s Republic of China must have a valid EVUS enrollment in in order to travel to the United States.

At this time, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will not collect a fee for EVUS enrollment during the early enrollment period. CBP anticipates the eventual implementation of an EVUS enrollment fee, but it does not yet have a time frame. Until the implementation of the fee, travelers can enroll in EVUS without charge.

CBP operates two EVUS websites: www.CBP.gov/EVUS, which provides information on the EVUS program, and www.EVUS.gov, which hosts the EVUS enrollment form. The websites and EVUS Call Center are the first points of contact for applicants who have questions about how to fill out the application or issues with the EVUS site. Staffed with Mandarin speakers, the Call Center will accept calls 24/7 with the exception of U.S. federal holidays. Beginning immediately, travelers may contact the Call Center by phone at +1-202-325-0180 or by e-mail at evus@cbp.dhs.gov .
