New Rule Requires Certain Chinese B1 / B2 Visitors to Enroll Online

A new rule will require some Chinese tourists and business visitors to enroll in an online system with their biographic and other information starting November 29, 2016.
The same rule was implemented by both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of States (DOS) to establish the Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) which, starting on November 29, 2016, requires Chinese nationals holding unrestricted, maximum validity B-1 (business visitor), B-2 (visitor for pleasure), or combination B-1/B-2 visas to enroll online, provide biographic and other information.  These Chinese visitors, after enrolling, will obtain a notification of compliance valid for two years before their travel to the United States.
The EVUS was created by regulations to authorize the collection of biographic and other information from foreigners who hold temporary non-immigrant  visas.  The program will be expanded to include other countries and nonimmigrant visa categories, according to DHS.
