Beginning November 29, 2016, Chinese passport holders with 10-year B1/B2, B1 or B2 (visitor) visas are required to enroll in EVUS when traveling to the United States by air or sea carrier or entering by a land port of entry. If you do not have a valid EVUS enrollment, you will not be able be to travel. If you are required to register under EVUS, you are not required to wait until November 29 to do so. The EVUS website is open to the public for enrollments and to date more than two hundred thousand travelers have successfully enrolled. 99.7 percent of travelers who have submitted the form have been successfully enrolled. As of November 29, enrollment will be mandatory to travel to the United States.
CBP does not currently collect a fee for EVUS enrollments but anticipates eventual implementation of a fee. There is currently no time frame for when the fee will be imposed. Until the fee is implemented, travelers can complete their EVUS enrollment without charge. To enroll, go to www.EVUS.gov. For more information go to www.CBP.gov/EVUS
