Beginning the end of November, nationals of the People’s Republic of China holding 10-year B visas will not be able to travel to the United States without a valid Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) enrollment.  US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has designated November 29 as the implementation date for the newly-created EVUS enrollment requirement.  EVUS enrollment is mandatory for People’s Republic of China passport holders traveling to the United States pursuant to 10-year, B-1 (business visitor), or B-2 (visitor for pleasure) visas.  Enrollment, where required, must occur prior to commencing travel.  Failure to register will result in denial of boarding or denial of entry by land.  Thus, the initial implementation of the EVUS requirement has the potential to create significant disruption in China-US travel for the unprepared.
