Visas (Yekaterinburg)

Consular Visa UpdateDear applicants, please note that Secretary Pompeo has temporarily expanded the requirements for those applying through interview waiver to renew their visas. If you are applying to renew your visa in the same classification, previously you could’ve renewed your visa up to 12 months after it has expired. Per the Secretary’s temporary expansion, you now can renew your visa up to 24 months after your visa has expired. The temporary expansion will be active until December 31, 2020, after which the renewal period will revert back to 12 months. Please note that at the moment, we only accept visa renewals for the F and C1D visa classifications.
