I am prepareing to import a young stallion from Europe. My question is, should he or can he be tested for EVA before he is imported? He has pasture bred two mares to date. Is there anything else that I should be aware of as far as testing that should be done before importation.

There is a breakdown of requirements available at the USDA-Aphis web site.
You do not mention how old the stallion is, and the age will have a significant impact on quarantine and testing requirements. There will be an absolute minimum 7 day quarantine in the US upon arrival, and probably longer - usually 21 days is considered an absolute minimum for a stallion. Note that the stallion will require CEM testing.
This is another useful link on the subject.
