The Consulate is both an instrument of U.S. foreign policy and a service provider to American and Russian citizens. It concentrates its work in the following areas:
Consular Services. The Consulate’s highest priority is the welfare and whereabouts of American citizens in our Consular District. Our Consular Section provides passport and other services to American travelers and resident expatriates. The Consulate also issues visas to Russian residents who wish to travel to the U.S.
Public Diplomacy. The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Vladivostok promotes mutual understanding between Russians and Americans and explains U.S. policy, government, society and culture to the Russian public. It is responsible for cultural, educational, exchange and other programs, information dissemination, and relations with the press.
