U.S. Consulate General in Yekaterinburg

The U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg has proudly been providing consular services to U.S. and Russian citizens since 1994. Its activities include the issuance of U.S. passports, reports of birth of a U.S. citizen abroad, and adjudication of nonimmigrant visas.  In the last year alone, the U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg and its counterparts in Vladivostok, St. Petersburg and Moscow issued more than 250,000 nonimmigrant visas to Russian citizens to travel to the United States. The section often holds web chats and public events to explain visa application procedures and policy to interested Russians.

The Consulate also has a robust public affairs section, which manages cultural, educational and exchange programs for the purpose of promoting contact between Russians and Americans. The Consulate sponsors exhibitions by American artists, performances by American musicians and dancers, and presentations by American academics to increase cultural exchange between our two countries. The section serves as a point of contact for students who wish to study, work or intern in the United States, and manages the popular Summer Work Travel program. Regularly, the section organizes an English discussion club, movie club, open house for students, and other events that strengthen English language skills. For the purposes of expanding professional relationships between Russians and Americans, the Consulate also supports Russians who travel to the United States for a series of professional development programs.

The political and economic section of the Consulate advocates for closer commercial and economic ties between Russia and the United States. Working closely with American business partners, the section assists in the identification of opportunities and business partners in the Urals region. Additionally, the section analyzes and reports on political and economic development in the region.

The U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg celebrated the 21st anniversary in March 2015. Until then, we look forward to continuing to serve the American and Russian public in the Urals and Western Siberia.
