Diplomatic and Government Officials

On this page:


Overview

A, G and NATO visas may be issued to diplomats and other government officials, their dependents, and their domestic employees, for official travel to the United States. There are very specific requirements which must be met by applicants in order to qualify for A, G or NATO visas under U.S. immigration law.

Applications for A, G or NATO visas are submitted directly to the U.S. Embassy/Consulate. A diplomatic note or official request from the sponsoring agency/government must accompany all A, G and NATO applications.

In Moscow, please contact the Consular Section at MoscowGAU@state.gov to make arrangements to present your application. In St. Petersburg, please contact the Consular Section at visastpete@state.gov to schedule an appointment to present your application. In Yekaterinburg, please contact the Consular Section at consulyekat@state.gov to schedule an appointment to present your application.

Do not pay an MRV visa application fee through this site, as it will not be refunded.
