EVUS
Starting from November 29th, 2016, all citizens or nationals of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) who have been issued a 10-year B-1, B-2 or B1/B2 (tourist/business) visa will be required to apply for Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) application on file with U.S. Customs and Border Protection prior to traveling to the United States. Failure to have a valid and approved application on file could lead to denied travel.

EVUS is a web based system that determines the eligibility of visitors with a valid 10-year visa to travel to the United States and is valid for 2 years or until the traveler’s visa or passport expires.
For more information on how eligible travelers can apply for EVUS, please visit http://www.cbp.gov/EVUS


Canada ETA program
Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an eTA, for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed. Starting August 1, 2015, eligible travelers can apply online for an eTA. 

As of March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid Canadian visa. However, from March 15, 2015 until Fall 2016, travelers who do not have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents, such as a valid passport. To learn more, click here.

The eTA is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for five years or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.

Applying for an eTA is a simple and inexpensive ($7 Canadian) online process that will take just a few minutes. Most eTA-eligible applicants will get their authorization within minutes of submitting the online form.

You must have a valid passport, an email address and a credit card to complete the online form. You can only apply for one person at a time. For example, for a family of three people, you will need to complete and submit the form three times.
