Application through a third party? Having a third party complete your application is the safest way to get the EVUS authorization, especially if English isn’t your first language, and you are not fully fluent. The third party company will ask you for all of your details and complete the application on your behalf.

The United States government suggests that you apply for your EVUS well in advance of your travel dates, in case there are delays in processing your visa. If you don’t have your EVUS authorization yet, you cannot enter the United States, and if you try to enter without it you risk being denied entry at the border. Being denied means that future visas to the USA will be more difficult to obtain.
