DHS/CBP/PIA-033 Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS)


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) is a web-based enrollment system used to collect information from nonimmigrant aliens who 1) hold a passport that was issued by an identified country approved for inclusion in the EVUS program and 2) have been issued a U.S. nonimmigrant visa of a designated category. EVUS, similar to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) program, collects updated information in advance of an individual's travel to the United States. EVUS also enables DHS to collect updated information from designated travelers during the interim period between visa applications. CBP has published a Privacy Impact Assessment update to provide notice and to assess the privacy risks associated with recent modifications to the EVUS application questionnaire, including the addition of an optional social media field on EVUS applications. May 2023
