US Embassy Moscow Suspends Nonimmigrant Visa Processing

U.S. Mission in Russia has announced suspension of all nonimmigrant visa (NIV) operations across Russia beginning August 23, 2017.

Starting September 1, 2017, all nonimmigrant visa interviews will only be conducted at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. While nonimmigrant visa interviews will resume at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow from September 1, 2017, nonimmigrant visa interviews at the U.S. Consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, and Vladivostok will remain suspended until further notice. The U.S. Embassy in Moscow will continue to process nonimmigrant visas without an interview for those who qualify.

Visa applicants who have their NIV interviews canceled will receive an email with a phone number to call to reschedule their interview at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow for a later date.

NIV Processing for Visa Applicants from Belarus

The U.S. Embassy in Moscow and the U.S. Consulate in St. Petersburg will also no longer accept new visa applications for residents of Belarus. Nonimmigrant visa appointments for Belarussian applicants who have already paid the application fee will be rescheduled. Residents of Belarus have been advised to schedule NIV appointments at the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, Kyiv or Vilnius.
