Do I need to renew my EVUS if my passport has changed / expired?

Your EVUS is electronically linked to your passport, if your passport is no longer valid, this renders your EVUS Visa invalid as well. You are expected to renew your EVUS when you change your passport. Currently, this online system has been created specifically to be used by nationals of China holding a 10-year B1, B2 or B1/B2 visa.

Once you receive your new passport you will be able to renew your EVUS Visa Update. In order to renew your EVUS you can use the enrollment number that was assigned to you when you first applied. It is highly recommended that you save a copy of the completed enrollment. When you access your EVUS you can make the proper modifications to your personal information and add the right documentation.

Note that if your visa has expired you will have to renew your visa first before you apply for the EVUS. Individuals that are eligible for the EVUS must always have a valid passport and a 10-year B1, B2 or B1/B2 Visa. If you do not meet these requirements the EVUS will be denied.

If you have to renew your EVUS it is highly recommended you do so at least 72-hours before your departure. While most applications take up to 20 minutes to be reviewed, it is possible that some take longer. Note that the system will set your EVUS status to “pending” while it’s being reviewed.

Bear in mind that the EVUS has a validity period of two consecutive years as long as your passport and Visa are both current.
