Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS)

In accordance with the agreement signed between the United States and China to extend visa validity, beginning in November 2016, Chinese citizens with 10-year B1, B2 or B1/B2 visas in Peoples’ Republic of China passports will be required to update their biographical and other information from their visa application via a website every two years, or upon getting a new passport, whichever occurs first.  This mechanism will be called EVUS – Electronic Visa Update System.

 

根据美中双方签署的延长签证有效期的协议,自2016年11月起,凡持有10 年 B1,B2 或 B1/B2签证的中华人民共和国护照持有人需要每两年或在获取新护照时(无论哪种情况先发生),通过网站更新他们签证申请上的个人资料及其他信息。这个机制我们称之为EVUS –签证更新电子系统。

In November 2016, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will launch the EVUS update process online. It will be very similar to the information update process that travelers from 38 other countries currently undergo every two years.

美国国土安全部、海关及边境保护局(CBP)正在开发这个系统,该系统将于2016年11月发布。EVUS更新流程是在线的,它将与其他38个国家旅客目前每两年更新信息的流程相似。

You do not need to take any action until the EVUS online update system is available in November 2016.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has established an informational website to explain the program and visa holders’ future requirements at www.cbp.gov/EVUS.  The Consular Section encourages all holders of 10-year B1, B2 or B1/B2 visas in Peoples’ Republic of China passports to visit this website to obtain updated information throughout the year.

在2016年11月EVUS在线更新系统发布前,你无需采取任何行动。美国国土安全部、海关及边境保护局(CBP)已经创建了一个信息网站,用以介绍这个项目以及这个项目将来对签证持有人的要求,该网站网址为www.cbp.gov/EVUS。领事处鼓励所有含 10 年 B1,B2 或 B1/B2 签证的中华人民共和国护照持有人在这一年里浏览该网站,以获取最新资讯。
