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

CBP's 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 is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment because EVUS is a new system that will collect and use personally identifiable information from individuals who meet the EVUS programmatic criteria, as well as information from U.S. citizens identified on the EVUS enrollment request.
