U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced that beginning Nov. 29, Chinese nationals holding 10-year visitor visas will be required to enroll in the new Electronic Visa Update System before traveling to the United States. EVUS is expected to begin accepting enrollments by the end of October.
BAL Analysis: Chinese nationals traveling to the U.S. on or after Nov. 29 must complete the EVUS enrollment requirement before traveling. The system is not yet accepting enrollments and is expected to be launched by the end of October. Once it is implemented, those with plans to travel to the U.S. on or after Nov. 29 should consider enrolling ahead of time in order to avoid possible travel delays. BAL will continue to follow the implementation of EVUS, and Customs and Border Protection has said it will update the EVUS website with the latest information.
