aliens holding unrestricted, maximum validity B-1 (business visitor), 
B-2 (visitor for pleasure), or combination B-1/B-2 visas contained in a 
passport issued by the People's Republic of China.
    EVUS provides for greater efficiencies in the screening of 
international travelers by allowing DHS to identify nonimmigrant aliens 
who may be inadmissible before they depart for the United States, 
thereby increasing security and reducing traveler delays upon arrival 
at U.S. ports of entry. EVUS aids DHS in facilitating legitimate travel
