知乎问答:EVUS 新政对持有美国十年签证的中国赴美游客会产生怎样的影响?

本文为美国驻华大使馆领事处一等秘书费亦轮在知乎网站就《EVUS 新政对持有美国十年签证的中国赴美游客会产生怎样的影响?》的回答。

在EVUS上更新信息将有助于为签证持有者进入美国提供方便。任何进入美国的人如果拥有为期10年的签证,都将既需要签证也需要有效的EVUS登记。请注意,前往美国的旅客只需要每两年在EVUS登记一次。

在EVUS登记的程序设计得尽可能的简便易用。它是一个在线系统。没有必要去银行。没有必要找旅行社代理。没有必要来使馆。你一获得你的签证就可以在EVUS登记。虽然登记过程应该非常快,我们建议你至少在出行前一周进行登记。

你可以在任何可以连接互联网的地方在EVUS登记。你将能够使用你的电脑、笔记本电脑或智能手机登记。这件事很容易,可以自己做,也可以让朋友或家人或其他第三方代表你来做。

让我们通过几个例子来看看这个程序是如何运作的。

  • 小王是一名二十岁的中国学生,在美国留学。她有5年的F-1签证。她今年夏天回中国看望她的家人,然后返回大学。前往美国之前,她并不需要在EVUS登记,因为EVUS只面向10年B签证持有人。
  • 小王的母亲打算与她一起前往美国,去看看女儿学习的地方。小王的母亲7月从美国大使馆获得了10年B1/B2签证,并与小王一起在8月前往美国。虽然她拥有10年签证,她并不需要在这个时候在EVUS登记。该系统要到11月才会启用。
  • 小王的母亲很享受她在美国的短期旅行,并希望在2017年1月春节期间带她丈夫,也就是小王的父亲,到美国旅游。小王的母亲可使用她的有效签证,在于11月启用的EVUS系统上登记,而且她必须在旅行前登记。她不需要另外申请签证。小王的父亲12月从美国大使馆获得10年B1/B2签证,他可以一获得签证就在EVUS登记。他必须在赴美前在EVUS登记。
  • 小王是一个好学生,即将于2019年春天毕业。她想让她的母亲、父亲和祖父母参加毕业典礼。她的父亲已经拥有有效的10年签证和有效的EVUS登记。所有他要做的就是买张机票去美国,因为旅客只需每两年在EVUS上更新其信息(除非他们获得了新护照)。小王的母亲也拥有有效签证,并在不到两年前进行了EVUS登记。不过,她换了一本新护照,因此她需要在EVUS上再次登记。小王的祖父母以前从来没有旅行过,所以他们都需要获得B2签证,并在赴美前在EVUS登记。
  • EVUS登记两年有效。但是,如果小王的祖父母很长一段时间不再来美国,他们要到临近下次旅行之前才需要再次在EVUS登记。比方说,他们要在2024年去度假,他们只需在旅行之前再次登记。
我希望这些虚构的小王一家的例子能帮你解答有关EVUS运作的问题。如需了解更多信息,请访问:http://www.cbp.gov/evus。最新的信息将公布于此。谢谢!


Thank you for your EVUS questions.  For those of you not aware, EVUS stands for the Electronic Visa Update System, a new system developed by our colleagues at the Department of Homeland Security.  Beginning in November 2016, all Chinese citizens who hold B1, B2 or B1/B2 visas will also need to enroll in EVUS before travelling to the United States.  Since we began issuing ten year visas to Chinese citizens, we have seen a large increase in applications, and I expect we will continue to see millions of Chinese citizens travel to the United States.  We are very happy that the ten-year visa is here to stay!

Providing updated information in EVUS will help facilitate entry into the United States for visa holders.  Anyone entering the United States will need both a visa and a valid EVUS enrollment if they have a ten-year visa.  Please note that travelers to the U.S. will only need to enroll in EVUS every two years.

The process to enroll in EVUS is designed to be as easy to use as possible.  It is an on-line system.  There is no need to go to a bank.  There is no need to go to a travel agent.  There is no need to come to the Embassy.  You may enroll in EVUS as soon as you have your visa.  While the enrollment process should be very fast, we recommend enrolling at least one week before your travel.

You may enroll in EVUS anywhere you have internet access.  You will be able to enroll using your computer, your laptop, or your smartphone.  It is easy enough to do yourself, but a friend or family member or other third part could also do it on your behalf.

Let’s walk through a few examples to see how the process will work.

·         Xiao Wang is a twenty-year old Chinese student studying in the United States.  She has a 5 year F-1 visa.  She comes back to China this summer to visit her family and then return to university.  Before travelling to the  United States, she does not need to enroll in EVUS because EVUS is only for holders of ten year B visas.

·         Xiao Wang’s mother plans to travel with her to the United States in to see where her daughter studies.  Xiao Wang’s mother receives a ten year B1/B2 visa from the U.S. Embassy in July and travels with Xiao Wang to the United States in August.  Even though she has a ten-year visa, she does not need to enroll in EVUS at this time.  This system will not begin until November.

·         Xiao Wang’s mother enjoyed her short trip to the United States and wants to bring her husband, Xiao Wang’s father, to see America in January 2017 during Spring Festival.  Using her valid visa, her mother can enroll in EVUS starting in November and is required to enroll before travelling.  She does not need another visa.  Xiao Wang’s father receives a 10-year B1/B2 visa from the U.S. Embassy in December and can enroll in EVUS as soon as he receives his visa.  He  is required to enroll in EVUS before travelling to America.

·         Xiao Wang is a great student and is graduating in the Spring of 2019.  She wants her mother, father, and grandparents to attend the graduation ceremony.   Her father has already has a valid 10-year visa and valid EVUS enrollment.  All he has to do is buy a plane ticket and go to America because travelers only need to update their information in EVUS every two years (unless they get a new passport).  Xiao Wang’s mother also has a valid visa and enrolled in EVUS less than two years ago.  However, she got a new passport, so she needs to enroll in EVUS again.  Xiao Wang’s grandparents have never travelled before so they need both a B2 visa and to be enrolledl in EVUS before travelling to America.

·         EVUS enrollments last for two years.  But, if Xiao Wang’s grandparents do not travel back to the United States for a long time, they will not need to enroll in EVUS again until just before they travel.  Let’s say they travel on vacation in 2024.   They will need to enroll again just before that trip.

I hope these examples of the hypothetical Wang family help answer your questions about how EVUS will work.   For more information, please visit http://www.cbp.gov/evus.  The latest information will be posted there.  Thank you!
