Effective May 12, U.S. Embassy Moscow will no longer offer any non-diplomatic nonimmigrant visa services due to the Russian government’s April 23 notification prohibiting the U.S. Embassy Russia from employing foreign nationals in any capacity. A very limited number of immigrant visa applications will be processed in life-or-death emergencies, and age-out cases. Immigrant visa applicants who meet these criteria should contact the National Visa Center to request an expedited appointment. Consular services at the U.S. Consulates in Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok remain in suspended status.

The U.S. Consulate Yekaterinburg and U.S. Embassy Moscow will work to resolve pending Consulate Yekaterinburg visa cases. Applicants with questions regarding pending cases should use the contact information here.
