When will EVUS begin to accept enrollments?

When will EVUS begin to accept enrollments?

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) expects to begin accepting early EVUS enrollments on a voluntary basis in mid-October, before enrollments become mandatory on November 29, 2016. CBP and the U.S. Embassy will issue an announcement when the system is active.  At that time, all individuals carrying maximum validity (10-year) B1/B2, B1, and B2 visas in passports issued by the People’s Republic of China may enroll in EVUS to ensure that they do not experience any inconvenience on or after November 29, 2016.  Travelers are encouraged to check www.cbp.gov/EVUS for more information.
