Some travelers would like to expedite their enrollment with the EVUS system in order to travel to the United States. However, the Electronic Visa Update System is an automated program and its process cannot be speeded up.
Enrolling with the EVUS system is a simple process that should take the traveler no more than 20 minutes. With that said, it is imperative that the applicant does meet the requirements in order to obtain an approved EVUS. The traveler should hold a valid chinese passport and a visa B1 or B2 with a validity of 10 years.
Most applicants receive a response within minutes of completing the application. However, it is highly recommended that the applicant enrolls with EVUS at least 72 hours before departure to the United States.
Even if you schedule an emergency appointment with a Consulate or Embassy, you are still required to register online to obtain an approved EVUS.
In order to get the EVUS you should make sure you count with a passport with at least six months validity. Your american visitor visa should also be valid. If your visa to the U.S. has expired, you should renew the visa before you enroll with the EVUS.
One of the main goals of the EVUS is to facilitate entry to the United States. When you enroll with the EVUS you are simply providing essential details regarding your passport and your visa. The EVUS is valid for two consecutive years, and you can always update information by making a new enrollment. For example, if you’ve changed your name or gender, you are able to update this information through an enrollment with the EVUS program.
If you travel without an approved EVUS you may be denied entry when you arrive in the United States. The system is safe and its purpose is to improve border control and national security. All of your data will be handled with integrity and your privacy will be respected.
The EVUS application will require your full name, birth date, employment details and a point of contact in the United States. You can use the EVUS for multiple entries throughout the two consecutive years, unless your visa or passport expire, in which case, you should renew these documents.
You will be able to track the status of your EVUS by using the enrollment number given to you when you register in the EVUS system. Remember to provide a current and valid email address to which communication with the EVUS will be made.
