New Travel Requirements for Chinese Nationals (B visitors)

Starting November 2016, nationals of the People’s Republic of China possessing a valid 10 year B-1/B-2 visa will need to enroll in the Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) prior to entry. EVUS will be used to collect and update basic biographic information. Enrollment in EVUS will be done online and require a nominal application fee. Each EVUS registration will be valid for two years or until the traveler’s visa or passport expires. The government has provided a FAQ about EVUS with more information.

Please be mindful of this new requirement as the timeline for implementation approaches, and contact our office should you have any questions about traveling to the U.S.
