Overview

U.S. Embassy Moscow no longer offers non-diplomatic visa services due to the Russian government’s April 23, 2021, notification prohibiting the U.S. Embassy Russia from employing foreign nationals in any capacity. All consular services at the U.S. Consulates in Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok remain in suspended status. Russian nationals may continue applying for non-immigrant visas at any U.S. embassy or consulate where they can obtain an appointment.

Applicants who reside in Russia may also apply at any U.S. embassy or consulate outside of Russia, and must pay the visa application fee (“MRV fee”) in the country where the visa interview takes place. To submit a routine nonimmigrant visa application and schedule an interview at a consular section outside of Russia, please visit www.ustraveldocs.com or ais.usvisa-info.com.
